The arts help to make D.C. a culturally vibrant city. The District is filled with a creative community that welcomes all different types of people who take part in developing our unique neighborhoods.
Councilmember Grosso is a passionate supporter of the role the arts and humanities have in the overall creative economy. He believes that a robust arts community not only promotes economic development, but it also enriches the everyday lives of our residents by increasing the general safety, welfare, and outreach in their neighborhoods. During his “Summer Arts Tour,” Grosso will visit various art galleries and studios throughout D.C. to promote engagement and support of the arts.
