Norfolk’s D’Art is celebrating bright new beginnings in 2016 by announcing plans to move to the Arts District. According to D’Art’s website, they will relocate to the Duke Grace Building at 740 Duke Street.
“The City thoroughly supports d’Art’s decision to relocate to the Arts District. Their presence will further enhance the vibrancy and authenticity of this burgeoning community,“ said Norfolk Mayor Paul D. Fraim.
D’Art has been closed since an accidental explosion at Selden Arcade last spring. Other businesses at Selden Arcade were able to reopen, but D’Art was not. Their new planned location in the Arts District looks to be a promising development for both the city and D’Art.
“The City would like to congratulate d’Art on its new home in the Arts District. The City and the d’Art organization worked closely together the last several months to identify space in the Arts District and we look forward to seeing d’Arts 22 artists create amazing works in their new space, “ said Marcus D. Jones, City Manager.
