11th Street Bridge Mural Project Hopes to Create a Healthy City Through Art

The 11th Street Bridge Park is proud to partner with the Risa Fund, Artolution, and ArtReach at THEARC in the summer of 2015 to create a unique mural that connects students from Wards 6, 7, and 8 to create a work of art that is representative of communities living on both sides of the Anacostia River.

Participants, drawn from high school aged students, will be challenged to illustrate their vision of a “healthy city, community and neighborhood” as part of a collaborative mural project. Each individual workshop will include discussions on how to illuminate the diverse values of each neighborhood, the arts and intercultural communication. The completed mural will travel to institutions around DC and be installed at the 11th Street Bridge park site when it opens in 2018. 

Monday – Friday, August 3 - 14, 12:30pm - 3:30pm daily
