This week on Third Floor Views we talk to Jason Bowers, founder and curator of JAB Arts and founder of DC Mural Tours. He talks about touring DC Murals and street art, and the burgeoning street art scene in DC, why DC’s art is unique, and how to best see it. He shares stories about his favorite murals and artists and what it takes to be part of a changing and growing art movement.
Jason Bowers is a Tour Guide, Art Events Management, Curator, Broker, and Gallery Manager. Jason has lived in DC for nearly 15 years and has watched the city’s street art and mural scene grow rapidly. He’s an experienced tour guide with years of tour guide experience.
For the past four years he’s been part of the team bringing a major international mural festival to DC (POW! WOW! DC). He has been fortunate to work with many of the artists whose work paint the walls of NE DC.
Coming for 10 days in September the POW! WOW! DC Event. Visit NoMa (North of Massachusetts Ave) to create and watch larger-than-life murals that enliven buildings and streetscapes.
