Gaia mural in DC

This mural by Gaia, Dusk of H Street, was recently commissioned by Smith Commons. The piece is a rehashing of one of Gaia’s early oil paintings. Gaia says “The interior of the chest is an Albert Bierstadt landscape painting of Yosemite referencing American manifest destiny and western expansion. The virgin terrain is contrasted with an old vacant building on H street which is a historically divested neighborhood currently undergoing a massive transition.”
