Creative Life in the Gateway Arts District

Thanks for Proposing!

Art Lives Here received nearly 50 incredible proposals yesterday.

A big thank you to everyone who took the time, energy and effort to put their ideas on paper and submit to the Creative Placemaking Request for Proposals. We received nearly 50 proposals from over 30 artists and community members. We can’t wait to dive into your ideas:


All the proposals; printed and ready to be read.

So what’s next?

Join us for our open review session. We’ll announce panelists later this week, but many of you who attended our Artist Stakeholders Meeting and Placemaking Proposal Workshop will recognize some familiar faces.

The Open Review Session will be hosted by Brentwood Arts Exchange (located at the Gateway Arts Center) on Wednesday, January 15th from 6:30 pm to 9:30 pm. If we do not get through all the proposals that night, we will be reconvening again at Brentwood Arts Exchange the next morning, January 16th at 11 am. 

The panel will discuss each proposal and view any supporting materials such as video, music and photos submitted by applicants. There will not be any opportunity for audience members to speak during the review session; attendance signifies understanding that the reviewers are providing constructive feedback, not opening the floor for discussion.

RSVP to the event on Facebook by clicking HERE.

Please note this is not a mandatory event for those who have applied to the the ALH RFP; attendance will neither increase or decrease the likelihood of a project being funded. Nor does one have to have submitted an RFP in order to attend. Art Lives Here is opening its review process to the public in order to ensure transparency and facilitate learning for all Gateway Arts District participants.  Please do not approach panelists looking for further information on the status of a proposal. Contact Neena at 301-699-1819 or email with any questions.

The announcement of Art Lives Here funded projects will be made towards the end of January/beginning of February.
