Each fall, new, original works from talented artists splash across walls in the NoMa neighborhood in Washington, D.C., and join the 80+ produced by the festival over the past seven years. NoMa property owners agree to allow their walls to be commandeered for the festival, giving over creative control to the artists. The ephemeral and collaborative nature of the process, and the freedom of the artists to work beyond the dictates and constraints of commissioned work, add a special dimension to D.C. Walls. 

From Wednesday, September 7 to Saturday, September 17, watch these larger-than-life works of art come to life throughout the NoMa neighborhood, and celebrate the artistry and stories behind each piece of art at the D.C. Walls Kick-Off Event and artist-lead mural tours. Stay tuned for more information.
