The Grate Project - A new series of large-scale public paintings by Kelly Towles Seeking to create large scale paintings that will exist in the public realm, Kelly Towles is creating murals that will completely cover the roll-down security grates at One World Fitness, outside the artist studios at 926 N Street in Blagden Alley, and at the Black Cat nightclub. Re-vitalizing these grates into dynamic contemporary artworks, The Grate Project is intended to further dialogue about the nature of street art and public art work, while enhancing DC's street-scapes. Kelly will be creating The Grate Project public paintings throughout September at the following locations:

September 15 -16: One World Fitness
September 22-23: Blagden Alley
September 29-30: The Black Cat
