Mapping out the murals of Columbia Heights

Bloombars mural

A couple of days ago I wrote about the awesome tin-can telephone mural that went up a few months ago on 13th Street, one of a number of murals in our area.

While researching that mural, I found a great blog post from Curbed DC mapping out 11 other murals in Columbia Heights. Most of them I'm familiar with (like the mural on BloomBars above), but a few I'm not, like Chuck Brown and MCA from the Beastie Boys, both of whom died in the past year, in an alley off Sherman and Columbia -- I'll have to check that one out.

What do you think, are they missing any? The list doesn't include the weird and great Washington Pizza mural at 14th and Randolph by the artist Decoy, but that's a little north. I'm a particular fan of this one at 13th and Park, also by Decoy. Can't beat dad humor.
