POW! WOW!, the global art movement that celebrates culture, music, and art worldwide took over the District during the last ten days of May, 2016 as POW! WOW! DC. Local, national, and international artists convened to enrich and enliven area neighborhoods with their murals. POW! WOW! DC is lead by local artist Kelly Towles, along with many great partners and volunteers. Of the 17 participating artists, at least four represented DC, including No Kings Collective , Decoy , and Matt Corrado . Other artists flew in from as far as Hong Kong (Caratoes), Honolulu (Jeff Gress), London (INSA), and Australia (The Yok). In partnership with the NoMA Business Improvement District (BID), the majority of the murals are on walls in the NoMa neighborhood. This includes walls on or near Ibiza night club, 411 New York Avenue , The Crucible building, and 1215 3rd Street.

From Towles:
“I wanted to bring POW! WOW! to DC because of the impact that street art has on this community. Art transforms the urban landscape, and this allows the public to watch those transformations and celebrate the process. It will be rad.”
