The Golden Triangle BID collaborated with Famous Luigi's Italian Restaurants at 1132 19th Street NW to paint the alley adjacent to the restaurant with graphic art. Designer Rachel Horlick's funky design has transformed the alley wall along the block of 19th Street that is full of outdoor dining and nightlife and made it an even more vibrant and exciting are of the Golden Triangle neighborhood.
This installation of the alley art is an example of the Golden Triangle’s public art initiatives. In 2008, nine historic fire and police call boxes were transformed into works of art, and in 2009, a creative bike rack brought both art and function together with a fun design when it was installed next to the Dupont Circle Metro south entrance. In 2010, two additional creative bike racks were installed to add splashes of color to the neighborhood. With a project in the works to bring substantial public art to the entrance of Farragut North and Farragut West Metro stations, the Golden Triangle BID will continue to enliven the neighborhood with art and design through partnerships with area businesses and the arts community.
