Today’s Most D.C. Thing comes to us from the minds of Kaliq Crosby and Rose Jaffe. They’re local artists who, rather than just seeing a blank wall on the side of the Pepco Waterfront Substation in Buzzard Point Southwest, saw a canvas they could use to pay tribute to D.C. icons.
The two have combined their talents and spray paints, crafting a beautiful mural there, featuring the images of Frederick Douglas, Marvin Gaye and D.C. stalwart Eleanor Holmes Norton.
The wall painting will brighten the community for years to come, hopefully giving residents and visitors an entry point into D.C. history.
