POW! WOW! DC Returns to NoMa

We couldn’t be more excited to announce that POW! WOW! DC will be returning to NoMa May 5–14. This is the third year the mural festival will bring a curated group of artists from around the region and across globe to our neighborhood to paint larger-than-life murals in a celebration of art and creativity.

POW! WOW! DC’s regional director, District artist Kelly Towles, has brought over 30 artists into NoMa to enliven public space for the past two festivals, and we can’t wait to see what he has in store this year. We'll have more news soon about the kickoff party, taking place on Saturday, May 5!

Swampoodle Park: Getting Closer

What once was just a series of design renderings and construction plans is now a beautiful park nearing the finish line at the corner of 3rd and L streets NE. If you’ve walked by lately, you’ve noticed the Wallholla play structure and dog agility structures have been installed, while construction crews continue plugging away at other elements of what is soon to be NoMa’s favorite place for pups and kids. Years of hard work by the NoMa Parks Foundation are starting to pay off at Swampoodle Park, and we can’t wait to see this space full of activity this spring!
