Graffiti culture has always existed in the marginalized and forgotten spaces of our community. From the railroad tracks that mirror our transit system, to the underpasses of bridges, and back alleys of our neighborhoods. For more than three decades, Washington DC has played host to a thriving community of graffiti writers who have redefined public perception of graffiti through large scale installations and public arts projects. The Dupont Underground space has always been an area of interest to the graffiti community, and has a history of street art making its mark along its tunnels and entrances. Dupont Underground is proud to present this collection of original graffiti works, representing six generations of local graffiti artists: a collection of signatures and illustrations, which inextricably connect the tunnels and the graffiti community. Curated by David Ross and Corey Stowers.
