Take a Post-it Art Walk Through Downtown Silver Spring

Montgomery County, Maryland is always looking for new ways to bring people together, and Downtown Silver Spring has done just that with their new Post-it Art Project!

After working closely with Pipkin Creative and muralist Patrick Owens, Downtown Silver Spring is now home to several multi-story Post-it Art installations, including Children’s National “Dr. Bear” on Inventa Towers and a Ms. Pac Man display, both made by placing thousands of Post-it notes on building windows. This all started with the intention of spreading joy and providing warm welcomes to those transitioning back into in-person work.

Now there are dozens of displays from Spiderman and Mario to rainbows and flowers on various windows and storefronts around the neighborhood. Take a walk around Downtown Silver Spring and see how many you can find!

There is also a Post-it Note engagement wall near the Wayne Ave garage breezeway on Ellsworth Drive, giving individuals a chance to make their own art. Residents and visitors are encouraged to leave a positive message or a cute doodle on one of the Post-it notes, take a photo and POST IT on social media tagging @DTSilverSpring.

After strolling around to see the pieces and making a stop at the engagement wall, grab a bite at The Eleanor for $1 Oyster Wednesdays, Social Hour on Matchbox’s patio or Nando’s Peri Peri for the perfect flame-grilled chicken. Plan your visit for a Thursday so you can end the night at a summer concert or go on a Friday to enjoy Happy Hour LIVE after your Post-it adventures!

Since these installations will only be up for a limited time, don’t hesitate to plan a trip to Downtown Silver Spring.
