Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market

Monroe Street Market

The Arts Walk at Monroe Street Market features 27 individual artist studios aligning a pedestrian walkway. Just steps from the Brookland-CUA metro station and central to this growing arts district, the Arts Walk is home to a diversity of creative talent.

The 40+ artists who make up the Arts Walk represent an incredible range of disciplines – from abstract painting and hand-carved sculpture to custom leather goods and letterpress cards. Organizations working in theater, film and poetry bring dynamic performing arts projects to the Arts Walk.  Multiple studios offer classes and workshops for artists both aspiring and established. Special events such as receptions, readings and Arts Walk-wide open houses provide opportunities to connect with the creative community in DC.

Bozzuto Development and Abdo Development created the Arts Walk within the Monroe Street Market project in the District’s Brookland Neighborhood.  CulturalDC developed the concept and contributed to the design of the multi-use arts complex, which includes the 27 studios as well as the 3000 square foot flexible arts space, Edgewood Arts Building.
