What's That? #10: The answers

Congrats to 'Arm,' the first reader to reply with all four murals correctly identified in this week's What's That?

RealWashingtonian chimed in a few minutes earlier with three of the four. The murals in the picture are: Duke Ellington on the True Reformer Building, Marilyn Monroe in Woodley Park, Madams Organ in Adams Morgan and My Culture, Mi Gente in Columbia Heights.

Michael Rogers is the director of the National Blogger and Citizen Journalist Initiative and a Media Fellow at the New Organizing Institute, where he develops nationwide media programs. Michael is the executive editor of PageOneQ and director of business development for Raw Story. He has lived in Adams Morgan for 14 years. 


Dang, I got three out of four which is better than ever for me. I missed the columbia hgts one thinking it was the refugee mural in silver spring.

Thanks for unhiding the original comments after the contest closed. Fun (but demoralizing) to see how quickly others solved the puzzle.

Judging by the exact street addresses in so many answers (including mine), there's a whole lotta Googling going on. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Google image search was the only way I could have gotten that last one (love that "search by color" option).
