Twitter is an amazing frontier for creative connections and artistic communication. Over the past few months, we’ve curated a list of Washington, DC area artists. There’s no limitation to medium or experience. This list represents a group of DC area artists who are working to connect with the world. There’s a wide range of work and it’s all connected via geolocation and twitter. The expanse of styles and interest make this a unique opportunity to view first hand, in person; previously only visible a smart phone or computer.

Beyond half of the US population have smart phones according to Forbes Magazine.
