A blog for the Bloomingdale neighborhood in Washington, DC.
Yes, I am a resident of Bloomingdale and I am tapestry weaver / instructor. I am also a member of the Wednesday Group. A group of exhibiting tapestry weavers from NY to VA. Check out the Touchstone Gallery web sight - www.TouchstoneGallery.com The Group is taking for the main gallery for the month of November. Check us out.
I saw a building on Mt Pleasant street that had the windows boarded up but each of the boards was a mural. Usually boarded up buildings don't look so nice, but this one was a true work-of-art. I wish I'd had a camera with me so I could upload a photo. It's on Mt. Pleasant up the street from the Bestway (towards Columbia Road).
Sounds like a fun project. Almost makes me wish I were an artist.Liz-It would be nice if everyone who boarded up a building took the time to improve the aesthetics of the neighborhood.
