D.C. Unveils Newest Mural in Northwest

City Administrator Rashad Young and the D.C. Department of Public Works’ MuralsDC project unveiled Monday afternoon “Connectivity DC,” the District’s newest mural, in Northwest.

The six-story artwork, located at 2001 15th Street NW on the southwest side of the Paul Lawrence Dunbar apartment building, was done by popular D.C. muralist Aniekan Udofia, ironically known for his fear of heights.

The painting, which is MuralDC’s 61st and tallest portrait mural, pays homage to the famed playwright, novelist and poet while celebrating the District’s senior residents and the U Street corridor’s historic roots.

The premiere event was held in conjunction with Age-Friendly DC, a citywide effort aiming to ensure all residents are active, healthy, engaged and happy in their environment via landscaping, natural features and art.

MuralsDC is a DPW-funded graffiti-prevention initiative that has been replacing tagged walls with original works of art since 2007.
