Have You Explored the Roosevelt Row Arts District?

Have You Explored the Roosevelt Row Arts District?

Have you explored the Roosevelt Row Arts District? If you want to support local art and culture in the historical downtown Phoenix area, then you’ll definitely want to add that to your to-do list this summer. Also known as RoRo by the locals, the Roosevelt Row Arts District is a walkable, creative district in the urban core of downtown Phoenix that is nationally known for its arts and cultural events, award-winning restaurants, galleries, boutiques and live music. Roosevelt Row begins at 7th Avenue and extends east to 16th Street. On the north side it begins at Interstate 10 and extends south to Fillmore Street.

Once a run-down area filled with abandoned buildings and former crack houses, talented local artists begin utilizing the space for affordable studio and gallery space. And thanks to the arts becoming a major factor in the revitalization of the area, the Roosevelt Row Arts District has since re-emerged as one of the most dynamic areas in downtown Phoenix.

This fantastic district is fostering an urban renewal with rehabilitated bungalows and new infill projects, and connects downtown Phoenix to historic neighborhoods including F.Q. Story, Willow, Roosevelt, Historic Roosevelt and Grand Avenue just to name a few.

Even if you’ve been here before, there’s always a variety of activities, artists, and festivals to entertain even the most seasoned signs of downtown Phoenix visitors and natives. For more info and upcoming events happening in the Roosevelt Row Arts District, visit http://www.rooseveltrow.org. And for more local events happening in the signs of downtown Phoenix area, please contact the Russo Team today.
