SHARING IDEAS

POW! WOW! brings artists together from the far corners of the country and throughout the world to create larger than life works of art. Murals from artists, who may only visit Washington, DC this one time, live on long after they've left.

BEAUTIFY THE CITY

Our goal is to make the city a brighter and more vibrant place, while sharing art and creativity from around the world. Each year we strive to bring more and more artists together to paint our city.

EDUCATE THE COMMUNITY

Each year we try to involve more and more aspects of the community with our festival. Our goal is to share what we do with as many people in the city as we can. We provide a number of guided tours of the mural sites during and after the festival, giving attendees a chance to see each artists' process.

INSPIRE YOUTH

Our family friendly opening event gives the youth a chance to get involved. Families and groups of friends can come and be inspired, eat, drink and dance and then venture out into the neighborhood to tour the mural sites as artists work. We hope to inspire the next crop of creators in Washington, DC. 

 

 
 
 

Want to Get Involved?

POW! WOW! Washington, DC is a non-profit festival that is put together each year by local artists. Funds are raised through a number of ways, from city grants and sponsors, but a festival is expensive! 
We are always looking for new partnership opportunities to develop ways for us to make next year's POW! WOW! even better than the last.
