Description

In 1993, the DCCAH commissioned artist Alred J. Smith to create a mural for the Fort Davis Recreation Center. The mural, “Positive Actions,” uses the structure of music, rhythm, harmony, and melody to communicate its theme: common bonds of heritage, positive actions, and inspirational words for the future.

Smith stated that although the mural reaches beyond sports activities, team sports such as basketball are one of the best tools this society uses to teach its youth the value of working in unity. The mural, therefore, applauds the teamwork responsible for making the Fort Davis Recreation Center a positive community tool. This project was the first of several that the DCCAH has commissioned over the years with the goal of revitalizing D.C.’s recreation facilities to create a more inviting and community-oriented environment.
