Adams Morgan Mural

Created in 1993 after the Mount Pleasant/Adams Morgan riots, this mural was envisioned as a way to unite residents representing more than 30 different ethnic backgrounds. Themes are drawn from African, Asian, and Central American cultures and include an image of children who reflect their parents' multi-national heritage.  16 District youth worked with G. Byron Peck in creating and painting this 28' x 35' mural, which was done in collaboration with the Latin American Youth Center and civic leaders of the neighborhood. 

Location: Intersection of Columbia and Ontario Rds., NW, Washington, DC 20009
