On the Streets of DC: Sutherland Street Mural in Dupont Circle

“The Toy Theater”
In August 2011, I had the honor of assisting White House Artist Peter Waddell in his endeavor to create a public mural for the residents of Dupont Circle. Walking past this space day after day from his apartment he was struck with the idea to make something bright and inviting as well as something that paid tribute to this neighborhood of Washington D.C.’s history.  Facing rain, sunshine, vertical heights of up to forty feet in harnesses, as well as hoardes of ankle biting mosquitoes this eye catching work of art  was completed in approximately two months. However, for me this young artist the process was just as rewarding as the end product. The friends, memories and experience gained from working on the”Toy Theater” is something that I will always cherish. While much of what happened has been captured in this photo diary more on everyone’s efforts can be caught in the young producer Dominic Green’s documentary ” The Toy Theater.” For more images please visit the official blog for the project.
