Copy is a FREE online portal for promoting and learning about arts-related activities in the Gateway Arts District. 


Finally, an arts resource arrives!

 The wait is over: is now online. Artists and businesses are using our NEW events calendar to find exhibitions, theatre, and markets; folks can now use our business locator to find out when their favorite shops are open; and, artists now have a growing listing of resources to find supplies, grants, residencies, calls for artists, and more.

Visit our Play, Work, and Live sections for more services. Phase II is coming in the fall/winter, please provide your feedback.

Below you'll find a handful of news and events within the Arts District. Next month, share your finds with us as we develop the Gateway on Foot Walking Tour series
