This painting of the White House is on the side of the building located at 2423 18th Street NW, Washington, DC. The building looked unoccupied when this photograph was taken in January 2010. But there were several signs in the front for a previous tenant, Mercedes Bien Vintage Clothing.
The image in this wall painting is of the White House from the Pennsylvania Avenue side with fluffy white clouds and blue sky behind. The White House has been painted so that it appears as a postcard or as a photograph with a white border placed against the other images in the mural. To the left of the White House postcard the Washington Monument rises the entire height of the mural which is a little less than halfway up the side of a three story brick building.
Three red stars of various sizes fill the lower left corner of the mural. These stars mirror the similar three red stars of the Washington DC flag.
The pieces of the mural are tied together by a large yellow banner that runs in front of the top of the Washington Monument and behind the White House postcard. The text on the banner reads, “If you lived here you’d be home now. But you still could not vote.”
