Free Event Features Self-Guided Walking Tours of District 2 Studios and Galleries

 

Prince George’s County Council Member Deni Taveras (D) – District 2, and the Gateway Arts District will celebrate Gateway Open Studios, two full days of free events featuring self-guided walking tours of art studios, galleries and cultural venues in the Gateway Arts District.


Self-guided walking tours will take place on Saturday, May 12, Noon – 5:00 p.m. and begin at Red Dirt Studios, 4501 34th Street in Mount Rainier, Maryland. Free shuttle bus service will be provided and tour stops include Artist by the Tracks, Gateway Arts Center, and Artworks. Walking tours are also scheduled for Saturday, May 19 from Noon – 5:00 p.m. An after party will be held on May 19 from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the Media Arts Lab, 33311 Rhode Island Avenue in Mount Rainier.


Council Member Taveras encourages Prince George’s County residents to discover what the Gateway Arts District has to offer.


“The arts are an essential part of our growing, thriving citizenry and a wonderful way to bring communities together. District 2 is going through a wonderful ‘renaissance’ period, and the Gateway Arts District is emerging as a very exciting regional destination for galleries, emerging artists, and art lovers. We want to provide residents with an opportunity to experience what the visual and performing arts community has to offer while giving some of our galleries and studios a platform for sharing their work.”


Following the events, residents can learn more about the Gateway Arts District with the District 2 social media campaign, the Gateways Migration Challenge.
