Then look no further than the Washington Avenue Arts District — Texas’ largest creative commu- nity. In fact, it’s a state-recognized cultural district in Houston. Already, the District is home to several converted warehouse studio buildings (you can find LOCAL Houston mag- azine inside Spring Street Studios). The multi-building complex is home to more than 300 studios of artists and cre- ative entrepreneurs, as well as vast amounts of exhibition and event space. Because of this unique congregation of creative space, the District boasts what is believed to be the highest concen- tration of work- ing artists in the United States! 60 L O C A L | august 17 www.artsdistricthouston.com www.summerstreetstudios.com www.silverstreethouston.com www.sawyeryards.com www.winterstreetstudios.com www.thesilosonsawyer.com www.silverstreethouston.com august 17 | L O C A L 61
