On New Year’s Eve the Fridge Gallery in Washington, DC brought its 2018 Street Sticker Expo to a close. Artist iwillnot created this event, and over the past five years the art show has grown in size and popularity. DC Street Sticker Expo 4.0 presented thousands of stickers by hundreds of artists from around the world. The major attractions at the 2018 event were the ginormous 8’ square collage by artist Nick Zimbro (@mr.zimbro) and the life-size skateboarder by Hugh Brisman (@hughbrisman).
Over the past ten days or so, Northeast DC has been abuzz with artistic activity. The international art festival Pow! Wow! returned to our Capital City for the second year in a row. DC artist Kelly Towles curated the event bringing 15 renowned artists from the four corners of the earth to the NoMa neighborhood.
On Saturday, September 17th, the Annapolis Design District hosted its second annual Art In Action Street Festival. Craftspeople and their handicrafts, food vendors, live music, and hundreds upon hundreds of local residents filled the festival area.
This past Sunday, in cooperation with MidCity Development and Recreative Spaces, Words Beats & Life hosted a live paint jam in Northeast DC. Entitled Roll Down Get Down the paint jam redecorated the metal gates covering the storefronts at 1301 Rhode Island Ave NE. The event featured prominent graff writers and street artists from DC, Maryland, and Virginia; plus live music and a vendor bazaar.

The strange weather this month (winter one moment, spring-like temperatures the next, and a strong thunderstorm with torrential rain) has kept most artists and writers off the streets. Moreover, Gaia is in India taking part in the St+art Delhi Street Art Festival. Nether has been busy in his studio. Pablo Machioli is in South America. In short, there was little art activity in Baltimore’s public spaces.
