    The entire WB campus is filled with artwork from all over the world and valued at millions of dollars. It even has a full-time arts program with a staff of 3 I think. One of the joys of working there is walking through the hallways, which contain literally thousands of works.

    North of VA 233 (the road to the airport) and adjacent (east) of the VA 233 exit ramp to Crystal Drive. South of the volleyball courts.

    Curiosity about it is not permitted? I'm trying to figure out whether it was "placed" or "naturally occurring".

    Everyday I See Something New. A fun mural by the Marie Reed community center in Adams Morgan. I like how it incorporates various things in the neighborhood including Julia's empanadas.

    Found near the river in Old Town Alexandria. Didn't see a plaque so don't have any info on it. Kind of cool though.
