This three-panel mural is in the Eckington neighborhood of Northeast DC. Best viewed from the Metropolitan Branch Bike Trail or the Red Line WMATA Train, the mural hints at the neighborhood beyond the Verizon building on which it is painted. The left panel shows one of DC’s essential businesses: the carry out. Artist Coby Kennedy describes the carry out as a place where everyone in DC can be found. In the far right panel, artist Cita Sadeli references the bicyclists who might pass the mural as well as the masks of the Japanese Noh Theatre used in the nearby Art and Drama Therapy Institute. The middle panel features Maxx Moses’ abstract interpretation of the love and consciousness that bring these parts of the neighborhood together.
