New mural alert! Thanks to the folks over at The Lily, a women-focused publication from The Washington Post for putting DC’s latest new mural on my radar. The Lily mural was revealed at Union Market earlier this week. The mural spotlights the phrase “We’re getting louder,” and aims to foster conversation among women about the issues that affect them ahead of Women’s History Month and International Women’s Day on March 8th.
“The Lily aims to give women a voice, and with this mural, we are taking this mission out into the physical world,” said Amy King, editor in chief and creative director of The Lily. “We’re getting louder” recognizes that women are continuing to use their voices and their words to advocate for equality. It celebrates the successes that have come from those women. For those who don’t feel comfortable speaking up, we hope this mural encourages them to start. We are all better off when we hear from more people.”
The mural was designed and painted by artist Annica Lydenberg of Dirty Bandits, with art direction by Cavenaile.
The mural will be on display on the corner of 4th Street and Neal Place NE, next to women-owned pop-up Brief Assembly, through the end of May. Share your voice by tagging @thelilynews on Instagram and using the hashtag #TheLilyIsLoud.
