Adams Morgan in Washington, District of Columbia — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
A People Without Murals Is A Demuralized People
Painted in 1977, A People Without Murals Is A Demuralized People is the oldest and only mural remaining in Adams Morgan created by a group of Latino immigrant artists. It was brought back to life in 2005 by Sol & Soul, a D.C. artist-activist organization, with the collaboration of artist Juan Pineda.
Sol & Soul thanks Jim Graham, Councilmember Ward One, for helping to make this project possible. We also thank the Advisory Neighborhood Commission 1C - Adams Morgan DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities, and the Mayor's Office of Latino Affairs for supporting this project.
Dedicated to all those who struggled to make — and keep — this neighborhood their home.
Erected 2005 by Sol & Soul.
