Subway Art: U Street Station in DC


I wanted to share a little subway art to start your weekend. This piece is part of a mural at the U Street metro station in DC. I don't know the artist, but I always stop to see what else I can see in this mural which takes up a long stretch of wall. The mural reflects a community that is culturally rich and diverse. This seems to reflect the Caribbean. I wonder what song he's playing? Maybe he's playing, Ding Dang Walla. Well, have a great weekend and be safe. Peace~

All of the above.

All of the above and you are open to it! Bacause all those things could be true, but if you are not intuned to it then it wouldn't matter because you wouldn't be able to see the beauty, hear the beauty and write about the beauty.

You my friend have an artist soul.

Street art! Oh joy. I love street art, I feel deprived, we have so many walls here crying for it, imagine murals on the miles and miles of sea wall, how beautiful it would look!

As Yasmeen says, he plays your favourite song.
