The Chinatown Metro Mural

The Chinatown Community Cultural Center wants your input on a planned mural for the entrance of Gallery Place-Chinatown Metro station. The mosaic-mural proposal is in the very early stages and the CCCC is looking for feedback and ideas from those who live and work in the area. The meeting is today!

The artist has been chosen and part of this meeting will be devoted to her communicating her initial concepts and vision. Martha Jackson-Jarvis has experience in this area. Her work graces many other public and private spaces including the entrance of the Anacostia Metro station. Ms. Jackson-Jarvis appears to be a great choice.

The entrance being considered is the Verizon Center entrance at 7th and F Streets NW.

The meeting is at the CCCC, is located at 616 H Street NW Suite 201. You can also enter from 7th Street-Regal Cinema entrance. Just take the escalator to the second level and walk straight down the corridor that is slightly towards the left. Here's the catch" the meeting is today. October 21, 2009. a t 6:00pm. If anyone attends, I'd like an update. Potentially a classy and artsy addition to the neighborhood and Metro.
