A DC Wall Hunt
"No one can say you're not committed," Emma told me when I let her in on my plan.
This past weekend, Emma and I headed down to DC to attend a craft fair but we had a plan. We were aiming to leave Baltimore at 8:30 a.m. so we could stop in Virginia and scope out some walls.
While we left closer to 9 (due to a combination of hangover-eyeliner that just wouldn't flick-forgetting the tickets) we made it down to Virginia easily and were able to find some awesome walls.
DC and Virginia are full of awesome wall art – and I'm totally eager to find more. JBG Companies, a real estate company in DC, is steadily commissioning different artists to create different wall murals to create "engaging spaces." If you check out their website, they've got a whole map of cool walls to check out.
Here are a few of my favorite DC/VA walls I've found in the past two months.
