The Petworth Community Wall is a rotating space for community artwork: posters, murals & more. It hosts rotating projects every 4-6 months and features curated projects with local partners such as the DC Public Library and Petworth Arts Collaborative. On view through summer 2019 is YOU ARE NOT LOST, a special collaboration between Cory Bernat and Reggie Black. Neighbors are invited to respond to the Petworth Arts Collaborative theme “What Community Means to Me” by submitting a photograph to be collaged onto the design — or stop by to be photographed in person. On June 23, Bernat will collect and print portraits of residents and live-wheatpaste them onto the wall.
