Cool “Disco” Dan is a Washington, D.C., legend, a symbol of survival of the city's most difficult years. It was a graffiti nickname, written in marker and spray paint throughout Washington, D.C., clear and legible, never fancy. Any resident of Washington, whether young or old, stick-up kid or congressman, couldn't help but be intrigued by its omnipresence. Who was this Cool “Disco” Dan?
Dan is as much a fixture of Washington, D.C., as anyone, and it's his city. He knows the city like no one else: Even today, he has a better knowledge of D.C.'s streets and back alleys than any cab driver's, yet he's never had a driver's license. And from the time he was 19 years old, he was homeless–a homeless legend so much a part of his city that his spray-painted name is on permanent display at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.
