United We Stand
We commissioned DC artist, RichshaadRyan, to paint the plywood we installed on our Farmers & Distillers windows after they were broken during the recent looting. His work beautifies our damaged storefront, as together we show what the fertile ground of broken windows can create: expanded awareness, understanding, and compassion.
RichshaadRyan, a self-taught artist, says he is “spreading positivity with bright colors as my voice” while making “ordinary art for extraordinary people.” He sells his work across the District and through his website.
