Murals of Mount Vernon Ave
The other day, my daughter and I went on a mural tour of Mount Vernon Ave. in Del Ray. We fueled up at Junction Bakery before our trek along the Avenue.
Junction Bakery’s mural is the newest mural on the Avenue.
There are two murals that were painted when there was an antique store where Walgreen’s is now. They still remain on the side of the building.
The mural at Greenstreet Gardens is large and expansive and a beautiful backdrop to their plants.
The mural on the side of Velocity is a nod to Del Ray’s Farmers’ Market.
Your Dog’s Best Friend has a mural that seems to flow seamlessly into their outdoor sitting area.
The mural on this beautiful home at the corner of Windsor Ave. catches everyone’s eye.
St. Elmo’s mural pays homage to one of our neighborhood’s most famous former residents, Jim Morrison.
The Cheesetique mural reminds us of the neighborhood’s history with the railroad.
The Mount Vernon Rec Center was a mural made by families in the community during Art on the Avenue several years ago.
My kids Miles and Vivien and I worked with Art teacher Sara Lovelace to create the mural on the side of Mount Vernon Community School.
The Tenants and Workers United Mural is an expression of the struggles of our immigrant community.
This apartment building mural is located across from MOM’s parking lot.
