DCist Reports Renovation, Gallery Coming to Seventh Street

According to DCist:
This week in Gallery Musical Chairs, Civilian Art Projects is moving to the Warehouse Arts Complex. . . . [C]elebrate Civilian's haul up 7th Street to Warehouse starting November 1. They'll be located on the first floor, until the second floor is finished being renovated in 2010, while the third floor will be artist studios managed by Civilian. In the meantime, join them Friday at Modern in Georgetown for a happy hour fundraiser for Civilian's Production Fund, a non-profit venture to provide micro-grants to artists, 6 to 9 p.m., or Saturday at the gallery for an artist's talk with Cara Ober, 6 to 8 p.m.
Civilian Arts will be a great addition to the arts scene around the convention center!

If I were a gallery looking for space, looking around the convention center would be a no brainer:

1. Galleries often have a great side source of income through renting their spaces out for events, and stuff that goes on at the CC often needs outside space for pre-parties, extra conferences, etc.

2. There's some great architecture for unique and cool gallery space, and rents are not sky high (yet).

3. The area's served by a metro and a circulator line, so it's easily accessed from downtown.

4. Great restaurants serve and are coming online throughout the area (corduroy, vegetate, nima's, acadiana).
