Getting Started

As with every other city, the District of Columbia has street art. Sometimes it's a mural covering the side of an entire building and other times it's just a small discrete cryptic sign on a step. Through these sanctioned and unsanctioned public expressions our city talks to itself. This page hopes to document that conversation.

Here is the street art template that can be used to create a standard page on our District Commons wiki for each individual piece of DC street art that you find. With a "piece page" for every work, then this page can be used to review, digest, comment and organize our DC street art discoveries, with links out to the "piece pages" as relevant. Before you add a new work, search to see if we've already got it, and if so, add your insight to the existing record.
