This amazing mural tucked away on a refrigerator warehouse near Howard University tells several stories. As the title and images suggest, the piece shows the seasons, although not necessarily in order. The mural is also an allegory depicting progress through life—the young girl with the camera and the child reading suggests that education leads to a full and happy old age, personified by the elderly woman and man with the snow cap. The buildings in the background are intended to convey a university campus. Pinak Mehta, owner of the refrigerator company, developed the theme with the participation of neighborhood residents. Like Edgewood, this project was part of the city’s graffiti abatement program.
