This is a large mural painted on the side of a three story building in Adams Morgan, Washington DC. The sign posted on the wall next to the wall art reads:
Painted in 1977
A People without Murals is a Demuralized People
is the oldest and only mural remaining in Adams Morgan created by a group of Latino immigrant artists. It was brought back to life in 2005 by Sol & Soul, a DC artist-activist organization, with the collaboration of artist Jaun Pineda.
Sol & Soul thanks Jim Graham, Councilmember Ward One, for helping to make this project possible. We also thank the Advisory Neighborhood Commission IC – Adams Morgan, DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, and the Mayor’s Office of Latino Affairs for supporting this project.
Dedicated to all those who struggled to make – and keep – this neighborhood their home.
Dedicado a todos aquellos que lucharon por hacer y mantener esta vecindad su hogar.
Sol & Soul, October 2005
