The annual mural event in the nation's capital is well underway!
Now in its 4th year in Washington, DC, the Pow! Wow! DC mural festival is starting to take shape, with an impressive collection of work by artists the world over.

ART ALONG THE METROPOLITAN BRANCH TRAIL
The Metropolitan Branch Trail is a stretch of path which skirts the Metro train line from Silver Spring, Maryland to Union Station in the District of Columbia, used by cyclists and pedestrians alike. For the past four years, a portion of the trail has also been the canvas for artists of Pow! Wow! DC. This year, the tradition continues with some beautiful work going up this week.
