POW! WOW!, the global art movement that celebrates culture, music, and art worldwide is taking over the District during the last ten days of May as POW! WOW! DC. Local, national, and international artists will convene 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 will represent DC, including No Kings Collective , Decoy , and Matt Corrado . Other artists are flying 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 will appear 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.”
