Gallaudet is poised to unveil a new mural this Friday at the H Street Giant. The description ("Art display will Highlight Giant's Role in the Community as the Nation's Capital Grocer") is slightly cryptic, but it sounds like a fun pre-lunch break.
WHAT: Gallaudet University art students present Giant with a “Nation’s Capital Grocer” mural that will be displayed inside the H Street Giant store.
On Friday, March 28th, 2014, students from the Gallaudet University Art, Communication, and Theatre Department will unveil a mural inspired by the community contributions Giant Food has made throughout the District of Columbia.
WHY: In May 2013, Giant Food of Landover, Md. opened a new store in Northeast Washington, D.C. at the intersection of 3rd and H Streets. Because Gallaudet University is a neighbor, located near the store, Giant engaged the school’s art department to create the mural for display in the foyer of the store. It serves as a visual recognition of their shared commitment to education and community wellbeing, and creates something special for the new store and community members who will enjoy it for years to come.

-Giant Food Store Manager, Charlton Clarke
