Tuesday, October 23 at The Black Cat Backstage
8pm reception to celebrate the success of The Grate Project.
Featuring music by Dj ikon and Dj StereoFaith, and video projections documenting the creation of The Grate Project. Via a grant from the Creative Communities Initiative, Kelly Towles has created murals on the roll-down security grates at One World Fitness, outside the artist studios at 926 N Street in Blagden Alley, and on the entire facade of The Black Cat nightclub. One of Transformer's first public art projects, The Grate Project is intended to further dialogue about the nature of street art and public art work, while enhancing DC's street-scapes.
