Murals in DC

Ever since, I went to Wynwood Walls in Miami, I've become obsessed with street art. It brings personality and color to neighborhoods. I've come across some street art here and there in DC but very few. When I heard that an event called Pow! Wow! DC was coming to town where local and international artists were going to paint murals all over NoMa I got so excited. One of my girl friends mentioned that a happy hour and tour was happening for Pow! Wow! DC so of course we registered. The event was awesome! We met in a building where we had some vino and little bites. Eventually, more people started to join the happy hour and we were introduced to local artist, Kelly Towles, who has organized Pow! Wow! DC. He gave us the tour and I learned so much about the process that they had to go through to be able to paint the walls throughout NoMa. I also learned more about the artists behind each mural. Definitely do head out and check out the awesome murals! Some of them won't last for too long since they were painted on buildings that will soon be torn down. Make sure to put it down on your summer to-do list! In the meantime, enjoy the pictures.
