It’s becoming a tradition of sorts… for the third year in a row, I took one of the official Pow! Wow! D.C. walking tours to see some of the new murals and hear from some of the artists still trying to finish their walls. Festival Director Kelly Towles was only on hand for a few minutes this time around but it was still great to hear about the festival from some of the people he works with and discover new pieces as well as revisit old favourites from the two previous editions.
As usual, Pow! Wow! D.C. was concentrated in NoMa, where 20 artists (9 locals and the rest from other parts of the country/world) spray painted their work on otherwise boring outdoor walls.
Here are some of the new murals I loved:
With all the new murals on the Metropolitan Branch Trail I cannot wait to start running that path more often!
