Gazing Over Rock Creek, Marilyn Monroe Looks Along Connecticut Avenue In the Direction of Downtown Washington

Salon Roi is located on Connecticut Avenue NW near Calvert Street NW. Roi Barnard thought a portrait of Marilyn Monroe would enhance the third floor side of the building occupied by his salon. In 1980 Charles Stinson hired John Bailey to cover the gray wall with Marilyn’s face.

The colors have faded some over 30 years, but the image is still striking.
The wall painting of Marilyn Monroe is located on the south facing (toward Calvert Street NW) side of 2602 Connecticut Avenue NW, Washington DC. Click Here for Google Map showing the location of the Marilyn Monroe wall painting.
