The third mural is just south of the corner of 12th and W Sts NW. The fourth is on the corner of 12th Pl and W St NW. My hood is well represented!

Relatedly, does anyone know if the 12th and U area was ever referred to as Cardozo (like how the Shaw neighborhood got its name from the school, I believe) or does the name in the metro stop only refer to the high school?

Second mural is on the north side of New York Ave between 6th and 7th NW.

Last mural is at the dance studio in Brookland next to the artist live/work building.

Can anyone recommend a place to find a mural artist?
