Top 5 Most Instagram-Worthy Murals in Washington, D.C.

We all want to be unique and we want to make sure it shows in our photos. However, this time we can let our setting do the talking for us and simply get in front, snap, post and relax. Traveling like a local has never be easier and more unique with Citiskopes. Check out our top five Instagram-worthy murals located in Washington, DC.


What: The Heart Wall

Where: Union Market (1309 5th Street, NE)

Who: Mr. Brainwash

Created in 2015 to celebrate International Women’s Day, the mural has quickly become a popular tourist attraction and Instagram fixture, even getting noticed by then-First Lady Michelle Obama. Due to its location alongside food market Union Market, visitors can get a great photo, while also enjoying tasty food of all flavors.


What: Angel Wings Mural

Where: 1357 U Street, NW

Who: Colette Miller

Part of a widespread project that began in Los Angeles by artist Colette Miller, the Angel Wings mural in D.C. continues to the project’s message of “reminding humanity that we are the angels of Earth”. Pose in front of the wings and brighten up your feed with the beautiful colors!


What: Blue Eye Wall

Where: Angelika Pop-Up at Union Market (500 Penn Street, NE)

Who: Unknown

A mural eye-catching in its simplicity, the Blue Eye Wall is noticeable for how the color of the eye pops out against the black and white background. Situated near Union Market, as well as locally-based gelato shop Dolcezza Factory, this mural is easily accessible and provides a nice addition to any Instagram feed.


What: Underwater Woman

Where: William Rumsey Aquatic Facility in Eastern Market (635 North Carolina Avenue, SE)

Who: Aniekan Udofia

Produced by a local D.C. artist, this fantastical work of art incorporates elements meant to invoke the Cirque du Soleil, while simultaneously remaining true to the joys of being at a pool. Udofia says the artwork is left open to interpretation, but he points out that the woman is, in fact, not a mermaid.


What: Watermelon House

Where: Q Street between 10th and 11th Street, NW

Who: Wade Wilson, Robert Banaszak

Originally meant to be a fire-engine red house, the Watermelon House was born after the owners discovered the side of their house had become pink-colored, rather than red. To correct the mistake, the owners decided to add paint and create a watermelon rather than repainting the whole structure!
