Looking to Move to the Gateway Arts District?

The Gateway Arts and Entertainment District spans four municipalities, offers tax benefits for artists who live within the Arts District, is affordable, close to DC, and has a critical mass of other artists living and working in the area. 

Below are regularly updated lists of local organizations' resources we feel will interest most Gateway Artists and Residents relating to home, general living and recreation. If you're a working artist, we also recommend you browse our Creative and Business Resources Page.
