Description

This mural, entitled “Scenes from Washington,” was originally installed at the Metro Center Station in 1988. The artist, Byron Peck, has since executed over 50 murals in the D.C. area, and in 2000, he was commissioned by the DCCAH to expand “Scenes from Washington.” The new format better reinforces the architecture of Metro Center and features images associated with Chinatown, the cherry blossoms, the National Monuments, the Museums of African Art and Natural History, and several others which capture and provide a festive look on the culturally diverse District. This work is one of several commissioned by the DCCAH for the Art in Metro Project, which offers commuters a more pleasant and welcoming environment for their daily travel.
