D.C. Unveils Ben's Chili Bowl Mural

The late Godfather of Go-Go Chuck Brown is being honored on a special mural at one of D.C.'s famous eateries.

City leaders officially dedicated the painting on the wall of Ben's Chili Bowl on U Street. It's one of several throughout the city sponsored by Murals DC, which installs the murals to deter vandalism and graffiti.

President Barack Obama, Bill Cosby and radio personality Donnie Simpson also made the wall.

Ward 1 Council member Jim Graham created Murals DC in 2007. This summer, artists have painted murals in Wards 4, 5 and 6 as well.
