This story comes to us from Councilman Jack Evans' newsletter:

Residents and passersby are being treated to an unusual sight across from the Heurich Mansion in Dupont Circle.  From 40-foot scaffolding, artist Peter Waddell and his team are in the process of painting a mural on the side of a brick townhouse at 1914 Sunderland Place, NW.
