Keeping up with Art & Cultural Events in the DC area

Being a custom web design firm, we like to keep tabs on what is happening with arts & culture in the DC area. We feel it’s important to keep our fingers on the pulse because it influences how we design and shape the brands of our local small business clients.

In order to monitor trends in the industry and see how the arts are performing in DC, we like to follow several Twitter accounts and websites. Here’s a brief list of resources that you might find helpful:

  • – If you’re looking for updates on events involving DC, Maryland or Virginia theaters, performing arts and museums, then this site can certainly get you going in the right direction. The site offers a running list of upcoming events and also lets you sort by the region most relevant to you.
  • Kennedy Center – One of my personal favorites. The Center offers some of the best performances available around the country. They also have a great web series “Explore the Arts Online” that you should checkout. The series offers insights from performers and other artists around the country.
