Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
City Arts, Inc. was founded in 1997 by G. Byron Peck with a mission to enhance and maintain the visual quality of the District of Columbia's urban landscape; to provide inner-city youth with creative alternatives to destructive behavior; and to advance education, awareness, and appreciation for the visual arts.
City Arts creates high-profile commissioned public artworks that beautify Washington, DC's neighborhoods. Our recognizable artworks include the Duke Ellington Mural on historic U Street, NW; the Metro Center Mural located inside the metro system's hub station; and the Three Macaws Mural on Columbia Road, NW in Adams Morgan. Through its Urban Arts Mentoring Program, City Arts hires disadvantaged DC public school students to serve as year-round paid student apprentices. Students participate in the full cycle of researching, designing, creating, and installing large-scale murals, mosaics, sculptures, and other works of art that help to revitalize neighborhoods throughout the city, as well as enhance the quality of life for hundreds of thousands of residents and tourists.
