WASHINGTON, DC—On the way to Whole Foods in Logan Circle, I noticed a striking red mural by Shepard Fairey on the side of Logan Hardware. It turned out to be an entire alley of art. The first image shows a young boy soldier who is shouldering a rifle, at the same time, a flower is blossoming from his beret and his uniform features a peace patch.

“Duality of Humanity 2” by Shepard Fairey was installed in October 2008.
The background of the Fairey mural includes “Power to the People” images of a black woman with a large Afro.

Further down the alley is a series of equally stunning, boldly-colored art installations that appear to be by other artists.
