Session Type: ARTventure

D.C. Alley Museum is an outdoor collection of public art murals by artists Lisa Marie Thalhammer, Bill Warrell, Rozeal, Aniekan Udofia, Cita Sadeli Chelove, Stephen E Lewis, Craig Nelsen, Rose Jaffe, Billy Colbert and Kelly Towles. Guided by Bill Warrell, the walking tour will present these murals, which commemorate the history of artists in Shaw's Blagden Alley. What was once a haven for D.C.’s underground arts communities—home to artist studios and galleries—according to Washington City Paper has transformed into one of the city’s “bougiest” neighborhoods, replete with high-end restaurants, suave bars, a yoga studio, a juice bar, and a chic coffee shop enveloped by expensive condo buildings. Walking tour. Grab a cuppa and spend time with the artists and art of Shaw's Blagden Alley.
