A Street Art Last Hurrah and Tagger’s Redux

Many thanks to Gilbane Mid-Atlantic for sponsoring a weekend of graffiti mural painting on the former Ginn’s Warehouse last July. Scheduled just months after Bursting on the Scene, the event featured the return of Cory Stowers with the full ART BLOC DC team for the Inaugural Double Down Kings All-City Invitational.

The event featured 60 graffiti writers who tagged the warehouse inside-and-out. Browse photos and watch video of the event online.

Weeks later, Gilbane held a groundbreaking ceremony for the Riverfront at West Hyattsville Metro, in which Stuart Eisenberg gave a historical review and served as moderator. Councilmember Taveras, Mayor Hollingsworth, and Gilbane’s Bobby Gilbane Jr. and Ed Broderick spoke. Watch coverage of the groundbreaking on WJLA and read the Life & Times recap.
