MuralsDC

MuralDC logo with stylized paintbrush

MuralsDC, a collaboration between the DC Commission on the Arts and Humanities and the Department of Public Works (DPW), is now launching the 2017 season of MuralsDC. The program began in 2007 to combat the growing trend of illegal graffiti and reduce urban blight. DPW is looking for building owners of chronically tagged walls, or who are located in areas where graffiti is likely, who would like to donate wall space for this free program. MuralsDC has been extremely effective in ending the cycle of tagging.

  • Donated space must be privately owned commercial property (not a private residence) and located in the District of Columbia.
  • Owners must consent (via a signed Authorization and Release form) to donate wall space for at least one year and leave the mural intact for that year.
  • Donated space must be highly visible from the street.

Property owners can click here to download the Request for MuralsDC Application and Agreement Form. DPW accepts and reveiws wall donations year-round.
