Have you seen #STICKMAN in DC recently? New stickman figures have cropped up across town in the past few weeks, notably in Dupont Circle and mid-city.

#STICKMAN can be found up and down the Northeast US and Canada, with sightings from DC and Philly all the way up to Montreal — and reports from coast to coast across the US from Boston to Ann Arbor, Hollywood and San Francisco.

 

Below, a few we’ve seen recently around DC:

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.

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.
