Albus Cavus Open Walls DC

Open Walls DC is a unique public art initiative in Washington, DC that provides spaces and walls for graffiti artists, street artists, muralists, art students, emerging and established artists who love to paint outdoors and large. The goal of Open Walls DC is to create large ever-changing murals that beautify our city and are unusual creative public spaces. The artists creating art on these walls have a permission to do so. We strongly encourage the artists to have a printed version of the permit while painting. It can be obtained by contacting us through facebook, instagram or email.
