Culver City Arts District

635816446923700000.jpeg Economic Development Division staff worked with local businesses to organize the first collaborative project for the newly organized Culver City Arts District.  The project involves the installation of 32, double hung street light banners along Washington Blvd. between Helms and Fairfax Avenues. Economic Development staff collaborated with the members of the Arts District to create a project that would market and promote the unique area, home to numerous art galleries, architecture firms, specialty shops and artisanal restaurants. The banners were designed by members of the Arts District and feature the words “dine, shop and experience.” The banner images reflect detail artwork from four of the eleven participating Culver City art galleries along Washington Blvd. The banner fabrication and installation was funded entirely by members of the Arts District and represents a $9,000 investment in the area. 

The District is continuing to expand and is currently developing a comprehensive website and map which will highlight member businesses such as the art galleries in the area, specialty retail and restaurants as well as other creative office and schools.    Visit the Arts District website.
