Broad Avenue Arts District Hits Its Stride

The evolution of the arts district, located north of Sam Cooper Boulevard between Hollywood and Scott Street, has been about seven years in the making, kicking off in 2010 with “A New Face for an Old Broad,” a street festival with pop-up shops, food vendors, events and performances. That event, said Paul West, president of the Historic Broad Avenue Arts Alliance, gave the community a glimpse of the area’s potential.
Today, the area has lived up to that potential, so much so that many business owners there refute the description “up and coming.” Broad Avenue has officially hit its stride, they say, and its future looks even brighter.
