DOWNTOWN 500 is an organization that is dedicated to giving exposure to artists of all crafts. We have interviewed young artists from all around the world to get a deeper insight into their art and to share their work with new eyes. We are dedicated in making art-based content to bring creatives together and to generate a heightened interest in the arts from the general public.

Based in Philadelphia, DOWNTOWN 500 operates with three main focuses:

  1. Giving exposure to young artists
  2. Creating more stability and opportunities for artists
  3. Creating heightened interest in the arts within the general public

Our future endeavors will include the publication of a bi-annual magazine, hosting community-based events in new locations, and releasing higher quality video and film content. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram to stay updated on the latest DOWNTOWN 500 news and content.
