Thanks for publishing my photograph, @ggwash. It’s of Elizabeth Taylor in love with Washington, DC (and so am I).
As I write this, I’m reading Derek Hyra’s (@DerekHyra) Race, Class, and Politics in the Cappuccino City, which chronicles the changes that have been happening in this neighborhood. This place and image probably represent a lot of that change.
I’ll post on the book when I’ve finished it. However/and I think it’s important to know the story behind this mural – it is not a story of entitlement, rather one of vulnerability and resilience.
Had a rough week? We’ve picked out five pieces of art from the Greater and Lesser Washington Flickr pool to brighten your Friday. Happy weekend from all of us at GGWash!
