Roosevelt Row Arts District (RoRo), in the urban core of downtown Phoenix, is a neighborhood on the rise, with galleries, restaurants, and shops. A $150,000 grant from ArtPlace will bring an infusion of art and design to the area, defining the neighborhood as a destination for locals and visitors alike.

An “A.R.T.S. Village” consisting of shipping container studios, performance space, and a new urban market garden is central to the plan, which also includes hiring a design team to create a vision for the future development of the district and new streetscape design guidelines to visually define the area.

ArtPlace is a new national collaboration of 11 major national and regional foundations, six of the nation’s largest banks, and eight federal agencies, including the National Endowment for the Arts, to accelerate creative placemaking across the U.S.
