Happy to have a final home and opportunity , Christine Bethea and Brenda Brown of the Passports Art Diversity Project, have dubbed the Penn Avenue Corridor "Art Central."
"It doesn't get any better than this," said Christine. "The entire community is a virtual dream team! The Bloomfield/Garfield Association, Sprout, and the Penn Avenue Arts Initiative under Friendship Development have all been wonderfully supportive of us and our programs. They want artists and the energy they bring to a community and they are in no way bashful about it."
ARTica is currently showcasing Passports "Sugar & Spice" sale and exhibition featuring original art and prints by local artists of many cultures along with an array of antiques and collectibles. The shop is open Thursday, Friday noon to 6, Saturday noon to 5 p.m.
