Duke Ellington Mural 

This recognizable neighborhood icon welcomes visitors to the U Street, NW arts district.  Located near the Cardozo Metro, this mural of the great jazz musician is seen by thousands of travelers as they commute through the neighborhood where Ellington was born.  Expanded upon and moved to its current location in 2004, the portrait overlooks the Plaza across from the Lincoln Theatre in the heart of the District's historic entertainment corridor. 

Location: 1200 U St., NW, Washington, DC 20009
