Go check out Georgetown’s latest mural, “Alma Indigena”, on the side of Los Cuates at 1564 Wisconsin Ave. NW. Artist Victor “Marka27” Quiñonez was inspired by the photography of @diegohuertaphoto and the indigenous people of Jalisco, and created this beautiful piece through the Murals DC project. According to Victor’s Instagram, the mural features an indigenous Wixárika Elder with ingredients used in many native cultures – blue maiz and guajillo peppers. (Photo by Georgetown Metropolitan)
