Murals: DC Edition #4

This was the weekend of festivals, but I actually only managed to make it to one. The first festival I wanted to go to was the Caribbean festival, which I've wanted to go to the past couple of years, but didn't make it. So the plan was to go to the parade at 11 a.m. on Saturday morning, and not pay to actually get into the festival, which shouldn't be that difficult. But unfortunately, despite getting up at 8 a.m., we made it to the parade route just after it finished. All was not lost though, as I did discover a mural that I had been meaning to make a trip out to see for a while now. It is titled "Daughter of Oshun in the New World", by Joel Bergner and is part of the Georgia Avenue Global Mural Project, funded by a grant from the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, which promote murals all around the city. It is located near Georgia Avenue NW and Kenyon Street NW.

It's beautiful. Too bad Petworth Liquors had to stake a claim right in front of it.
