On this last episode, we look back on 23 years of joyous, difficult and always informative conversation.
An arts coalition recently signed a lease with the District of Columbia to develop the unused underground trolley tunnel space under Dupont Circle. They envision turning it into a cultural destination, which will include art and design-related galleries, performance spaces and pop ups. It’s something D.C., Hyattsville, Rosslyn and other communities are aiming for in creating development featuring designated arts districts. We explore what it takes to create space for the arts.
