We were inspired by the vibe of the space and felt the energy of the art, attendees and music

We are definitely biased since he is a good friend, but we absolutely loved this mural by Kelly Towles. His color choices and abstract background inspired us. Can we make an outfit out of this?

Submerge is an art show produced by No Kings Collective, who we last covered at Activation 440. We love the current trend in DC of using vacant characterful semi-derelict spaces as venues for events. This phenomenon is due to organizations such as verdeHOUSE who help facilitate the use of these spaces. If you are reading this before Sunday the 25th of September, make sure you visit the show (there’s new exhibits unveiled daily) – details HERE.
