Chuck Brown

Artist:

Created: 2012

Sponsor: Sweet Mango Cafe

Days after the death of DC’s Godfather of Go-Go, Charles Jean-Pierre and his students from MacFarland Middle School began work on this mural as a tribute. In this image, based on Darrow Mongomery’s 1992 photgraph, Chuck Brown appears to be watching over the neighborhood from the western wall of the popular Sweet Mango Café. The piece received overwhelmingly positive responses, both because of the subject and the achievement of the young artists. However, Jean-Pierre neglected to contact Montgomery before using his image, leading to a minor controversy.
