Sometimes a spot stays up much longer than you’d expect, especially given an area’s traffic and change in streetscape. That’s definitely the case with this simple tag by JAZI on 16th St. NW across from Caroline.
Central and visible, view of the spot is usually blocked by parked cars (as we found it), so you’d have to catch it at just the right moment to notice at all. Plus, the difficulty getting to it makes it easy to pass.
Around the corner – a new stencil seen recently around Dupont that will likely be a bit more fleeting.
Walking around Dupont and U St. this week, you may have seen these new stickers by DECOY featuring The Sweater Set. The yellow one is on U St. b/t 16th & 17th, south side of the street. The blue one is at the corner of 17th & Riggs, on the back of a sign.

DC’s top creative crews mix it up this Halloween for techARTS. Part art, part party – an all funky nerd fest poised to blow our minds with killer costumes, cool beats, and a fresh set that’ll keep us alive for Day of the Dead.
Consider techARTS a human mashup experiment. They’ll provide the venue, music and blank slate for you to do the following:
• Meet the brightest minds in tech and the arts in the region.
• Express your passion with opportunities to pimp your work.
• Find collaborators for the stuff you want to bring to life.
• Party like it’s 1999 1989.
DC’s Creative and Technology communities – coming together for a first time in mass to meet, find collaborators and show off their skills. If you push pixels, sling code, trickle paint, create content or belt out beats this is for you. Okay even if you don’t do that stuff – if you’re kinda awesome this is where you want to be.
