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.

There will be a public reception to celebrate the creation of all the paintings and all those who helped support The Grate Project October 23 from 8-11pm at The Black Cat BackStage.
