Mayor Muriel Bowser and Ward 3 D.C. Council member Mary Cheh were among the dignitaries to participate in Saturday’s ribbon-cutting and dedication ceremony for the “Celebrating Tenleytown’s History: Past and Present” mural created by artist Jarrett Ferrier and photographer Stephen Voss.

The project at 4425 Wisconsin Ave. NW comes from a $36,760 grant from the D.C. Commission on the Arts and Humanities.

“Through our Public Art Building Communities grant we are providing local artists with an opportunity to help shape the look and feel of neighborhoods throughout the city,” Bowser said in a news release. “Washington, DC is known for our iconic public art, and today, I am proud to celebrate the city’s newest work and the artists who created it.”
