Over the last decade, the arts scene in and around D.C. has been a hot topic for developers, patrons and the artists themselves.

As the transition to the Trump administration nears, we consider the ways in which the arts scene has flourished in the city and how it might both be challenged and continue to thrive in the years ahead.
