Painting Over Graffiti

Graffiti – AC/DC Lane, Melbourne CBD
Originally uploaded by Toots Fontaine

DC’s spending $100,000 over the next year to eradicate large graffiti murals by hiring folks to paint murals over them. The first mural went up this weekend in Northwest at Georgia & Fairmont near Howard.

12 other murals will go up this year; the designs for 6 have been approved already.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. Any word on who’s going to be painting all of them? Teenagers did the first one, so I hope it continues in this trend of hiring artists.
