Mural: George Washington in Drag

The mural is painted on the side of the old Camp Washington market -- a weird presentation of a "Campy Washington."

[Michael C Green, 04/25/2017]

The mural, by artist Scott Donaldson, was unveiled September 3, 2008. Its gold-colored frame has faded, but otherwise the paint has held up well.
