Art On 8th – Free Art And Cutural Events Continue Through October

Dance Place Open House 004Art on 8th, the excellent free arts series organized by the good folks at Dance Place is an “interactive music, dance and visual arts events for all ages and abilities”. Since June the events have brought live jazz, dance and crafts events to Monroe Street Market and other locations on 8th Street, NE. We think it is just fantastic!

  • The Arts Plaza is the plaza located in front of Dance Place – 3225 8th St. NE
