Description

The sculpture/mural serves as the gateway to Historic Anacostia, depicting the history of the area and combining the unique stories of the diverse individuals within this vibrant East of the River community. DC Youth from DCCAH’s Summer Youth Employment Program Media Arts Camp collaborated over a six-week period under the direction of two local artists, Tim Conlon and Billy Colbert, to create a mural concept. All materials from the project consist of reclaimed wood, recycled aluminum and organic moss, making it the first “Green” public art project in Washington, DC.

The goal of the project was to create a community public art piece as part of the Summer Youth Employment Program. Youth worked in graphic design and digital rendering to plan the project; and were expose to screen printing and woodworking to implement the finished product.
