Washington, D.C. is one of the nation’s premier cities for arts and culture with a variety of venues and a robust professional class dedicated to the study, preservation, and display of the visual arts. However, few working artists are able to afford housing and studio space in the city, depriving residents of a valuable asset for creativity and economic development. A panel of experts discusses the role of planners, architects, and policy makers in shaping D.C.’s built environment to create live/work space for artists. Presented in partnership with Hamiltonian Artists.
