The Award recognizes the collective growth of enhanced public facilities, new restaurants, incoming housing, and increasing tenancies along the Route One Corridor.  The Gateway Arts District’s growth in public art, outreach, promotional initiatives and the expanded web presence of MyGatewayArts.org served to bring greater attention in the Washington, DC, metro region. The Art Lives Here Initiative, an Arts District-wide partnership led by Joe’s Movement Emporium, is also building local momentum. Each of these assets enhances communal character that expands the market base for the Arts District’s retail, studios and dining.

The Arts & Entertainment Districts Program is administered by the Maryland State Arts Council, an agency of the DBED within the Division of Tourism, Film and the Arts. For information on the program, contact Executive Director Theresa Colvin at 410-767-6555 or visit www.msac.org. For more information about the award visit mygatewayarts.org/press/?p=1910.
