The dull, gray construction fence around UDC’s future student center has been given a splash of color and a new purpose: Public art display.
Deniece Clifford, the manager of operations for UDC’s facilities management office, says these are the students’ handiwork:
“The University of the District of Columbia’s Art on the Fence Project is a showcase of artwork from past and present students of the University’s Art Programs. The pieces are prominently exhibited along the 4200 block of Connecticut Avenue, NW and Van Ness Street, NW. The artwork offers an incredible display of diverse pieces informed by the theoretical and practical foundations provided students by the University’s celebrated art faculty. Please come by and enjoy this visual journey!
