Description

In 2009, the DCCAH partnered with the D.C.’s Summer Youth Employment Program and Albus Cavus, a nonprofit artist collective and mentoring program, to create one of the largest murals in D.C. The mural, which spans 275 feet on the Rhode Island Avenue Shopping Center building, is titled “From Edgewood to the Edge of the World.” Public response has been positive. According to a Washington Post article, District artist Quest Skinner remarked that “people now stop in this area where typically they cut through. It changes your environment. Your environment can be luscious even in the darkest of times in the darkest of places." The goal of the mural, says Albus Cavus director Peter Krsko, is to inspire people to “step beyond their own personal boundaries.”
