From a press release:

“The Yards has arranged for seven internationally renowned artists to turn the monolithic former NGIA building into a public arts project called Art Yards. The fleeting installation, which will be completed by mid-December and demolished over the winter months, will feature Hawaii based artist Jasper Wong, DC based artist Kelly Towles, Australia based couple Dabs Myla, 3-D Acrylic/Chalk Street Artist Murals of Baltimore, and NY based mapping video artist trio 3_Search.

Art Yards kicks off November 20th with a bombastic event that will dump 200 gallons of Sherwin Williams paint down the M Street façade, creating a free-form artwork. The artists will then take turns transforming the rest of the building over the following weeks.

Who: Open to the public.
When: Wednesday, November 20
Roughly 10 a.m. – 2 p.m.
Where: M St SE at First St SE
