Mural Walk


Thursday April 18, 2019
10 AM-1 PM

This cultural walk begins at the Historic Howard Theater and culminates at the world famous Ben’s Chili Bowl*, where we will have lunch, watch a short film on Ben’s and, if we are lucky, we may even meet Virginia Ali, matriarch of the Ali family. *Lunch at Ben’s is optional and not included with ticket.

The Mural Walk will be led by local D.C. muralist Candace Taylor, who explains the different mural techniques as well as some little known facts about murals. On our way down U Street, we’ll drop by the African American Civil War Memorial and Museum for a few minutes.

If you love culture, if you love art, if you love history, if you love good food, then you will love this walk!
