"One of the oldest music murals in the city is located indoors, in the U Street Metro Station. Commissioned by the Metro's "Art in Transit" program, "Community Rhythms" was painted in 1994 by artist Alfred J. Smith with assistance from Howard University art students…The vibrant paintings depict artists and dancers of various ethnicities, playing instruments from all over the world."
This project was made possible in part by the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities.
Wikipedia Description: U Street/African-American Civil War Memorial/Cardozo (Washington Metro)
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
U St/African-Amer Civil War Memorial/Cardozo is a Washington Metro station in Washington, D.C. on the Green Line. It is also served by the Yellow Line during off-peak times.
The station is located in northwest Washington and serves the U Street neighborhood; nearby attractions include the Lincoln Theatre, the historic restaurant Ben's Chili Bowl, and several nightclubs, including The Black Cat and the 9:30 Club. The station is approximately five blocks east of the neighborhood of Adams Morgan.
The station is single-platform with entrances at opposite ends, both on U Street at 10th and 13th Streets. "Cardozo" was added to the name just before opening, and refers to the nearby Cardozo High School. "African-Amer Civil War Memorial" was added in 1999 when the African American Civil War Memorial was completed at U Street and Vermont Ave NW. Service at the station began on May 11, 1991. With this designation, this station has the longest name in the Metro system, at 44 characters; the shortest station name is Takoma.
Trains originally serviced this station as Yellow Line trains until Green Line service was formally introduced later that year. Yellow Line service resumed in late 2006 as part of an 18-month experiment to extend that line to Fort Totten station during non-rush hours and weekends.
On June 10, 2001, Metro Transit Police Officer Marlon C. Morales was killed in the line of duty at this station, while intervening in a fare dispute. A plaque exists outside the 13th Street entrance in his honor.
Bigger photos? To save server space, the full-sized versions of these images have either not been loaded to the server or have been removed from the server. (Only some pages are loaded with full-sized images and those usually get removed after three months.)
I still have them though. If you want me to email them to you, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
and I can email them to you, or, depending on the number of images, just repost the page again will the full-sized images.
2020 photos: Well, that was a year, wasn't it? The COVID-19 pandemic cut off most events here in DC after March 11.
The child president's handling of the pandemic was a series of disastrous missteps and lies, encouraging his minions to not wear masks and dramatically increasing infections and deaths here.The BLM protests started in June, made all the worse by the child president's inability to have any empathy for anyone other than himself. Then of course he tried to steal the election in November. What a year!
Equipment this year: I continued to use my Fuji XS-1 cameras but, depending on the event, I also used a Nikon D7000.
The farthest distance I traveled after that was about 40 miles. I only visited sites in four states -- Maryland, Virginia, West Virginia and DC. That was the least amount of travel I had done since 1995.
Number of photos taken this year: about 246,000, the fewest number of photos I had taken in any year since 2007.
