Rhode Island Ave Call Boxes

Working with Rhode Island Avenue Main Street Charles Bergen Studios was awarded a $50,000 Public Art Building Communities Grant from the District of Columbia Commission on the Arts and Humanities to implement artwork designs for one police and five fire callboxes on Rhode Island Ave NE. Each design has a unique connection to the history of the neighborhood and Washington, DC. The six themes are the Metropolitan Branch Line, The Maryland and Washington Railway, The Columbian Harmony Cemetery, the History of the Callboxes, and the musician, composer and performer Bo Diddley.
