Gretchen Carswell of MDB Communications in Washington DC commissioned Steven Noble to create the illustrations for the new DC Lotto tickets that represents their new Neighborhoods Campaign, celebrating the amazing communities that make up DC such as iconic DC sites like Ben’s Chili Bowl and the Chinatown gate, and Dance Place representing the best of DC’s unique arts and culture. The illustrations were rendered in a “classic” bold and graphic woodcut style and have been been very successful in reviving interest in these communities along with demand for these highly-prized collectible tickets.
The list of communities include some of the following:
Located in the heart of the city, the Adams Morgan neighborhood offers its diverse population a plethora of ethnic dining options and a thriving nightlife.
Billed as one of Washington, DC’s first suburbs, Anacostia was joined to the District of Columbia in 1791. Home to historic sites, cultural destinations, a growing business district, and greespaces–the area is enjoying a renaissance of interest and popularity.
One of the largest residential historic neighborhoods in DC, Capitol Hill also serves as the home of the United States Congress. Some of the more
prominent landmarks include the United States Capitol, the Marine Barracks, the Supreme Court building, the Library of Congress, and Eastern Market.
Fort Dupont is a beautiful neighborhood in Southeast DC that features tree-lined streets, green spaces, and a sense of community.
Known for its stately row houses, Georgetown is a brilliant mix of historic cobblestone streets and some of the District’s most vibrant and fashionable retail corridors.
H Street today is a bustling, pedestrian-friendly corridor known for its vibrant nightlife. The recent revitalization of what was once one of the city’s
most important transportation and commercial districts has brought with it an exciting collection of theaters, restaurants, and shopping.
An integral part of Pierre L’Enfant’s original plan for Washington, DC, the Southwest Waterfront neighborhood feels like its own little island
tucked away in the smallest of the city’s four quadrants.
Named after Woodley House, the mansion built by Philip Barton Key, the uncle of “Star Spangled Banner” author Francis Scott Key, Woodley Park
