Woodly Park Metro Station 2700 Connecticut Ave Nw, Washington, DC 20008
An off-the-track guidebook author leads this two-hour walking tour of the murals through three neighborhoods. From elegant Woodley Park through multi-cultural Adams Morgan to the outer edge of the former Black Broadway. Woodley Park hosts bustling hotels, long-time residents and a fussy poltergeist. A hub for urban nightlife, Adams Morgan has long been a social, commercial and cultural center for its ethnically diverse residents, and the first integrated neighborhood in DC to host Street Art Murals. As you turn the corner towards Mid-City, you will be following the route of the greats of DC’s former jazz alley. Throughout the neighborhoods you will see murals painted in homage to artists’ heritage; significant historic and cultural figures, and to represent the neighborhoods themselves. You’ll learn about the artists, the stories they tell, and the DC organizations that facilitate the creation and placement of these alluring works of art.
