MuralsDC is a project funded by the DC Department of Public Works, in cooperation with the DC Commission on the Arts and the Humanities, and is designed to provide permanent graffiti abatement to those properties that have experienced or are at risk of this type of vandalism. Since its pilot in 2007, MuralsDC has painted more than 50 murals in every ward of the city. posted by numaner (3 comments total) 5 users marked this as a favorite
Cool, I have seen a few of these. One of my favorite artists working in DC is Aniekan Ufodia.

Had no clue this was an organized thing. One just went up in my neighborhood --- it's got a dinosaur in it!

Montreal has been doing this for awhile. I don't think that lowering the risk of vandalism was a main goal but it definitely seems to have had that effect.
