The NEA grant will support phase three of Art Lives Here, the development of a creative enterprise incubator in the Gateway Arts District. The creation of the incubator includes the planning and implementation of gallery and artist work spaces and exhibitions of multidisciplinary visual and performing arts in underutilized retail space. Primary partners are the Gateway Community Development Corporation and Prince George's County Redevelopment Authority, working with the communities of North Brentwood, Brentwood, and Mount Rainier, Maryland; Mount Rainier Business Association; Maryland-National Capital Parks and Planning Commission; and Prince George's County Economic Development Corporation. The project will enliven a two-mile corridor along U.S. Route 1, serving three suburban communities on the outskirts of Washington, D.C., with a combined population of 11,800 residents.
