Let’s end the stigma of pursuing an art career.
Downtown 500 aims to create a sustainable economy for working artists. We believe that we can create a world where pursuing a career in art is less of a risk, by bringing artists together to build each other up and create a community. Since discovering a community of young artists on Twitter in 2017, we’ve been working with these artists in an effort to get more eyes on their work through interviews, events, the publication of a magazine, split-profit shirt collaborations, and more. We are currently based in Philadelphia, but we work with artists globally. For more information and further inquiries, please contact us here.
