Luis took this photo of the artist with his mural while out walking along U Street. This mural, “The Afro-Colombian Mural: Currulao y Desplazamiento,” by Joel Bergner is in an alley just off the south side of the 1300-block of U Street NW. You can see it from the sidewalk the next time you walk by there. Luis has seen other murals around town that Bergner has done.
Bergner is a native Illinoisan, who lived in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood, which helped to inspire his work. More photos after the jump.
