Little by the little, the 27 art studios that make up Arts Walk and form the bulk of the first floor retail level at Monroe Street Market’s Brookland Works building are starting to become occupied. Eric Hope from East City Art wrote up an excellent blog post about how the Arts Walk is galvanizing the art scene in our area by creating a diverse arts-based community. Now that this development is starting to take shape, there will be a Grand Opening event for the community to check out this exciting new feature in our backyard! From the Eventbrite site for this event:
Monroe Street Market presents Art in the Mix! An arts festival on October 26, 2013 from 1:00 – 5:00 PM at the Brookland-CUA Metro.
