Gateway Arts District

Spanning two miles along Route 1 Baltimore/Rhode Island Avenue, with quick access to the MARC, two Green Line stations, and several bus lines to Mount Rainier, the Prince George’s County Gateway Arts District is the perfect home for artists, art-lovers, families, commuting professionals, and students.

Formed in 2001, the rich artistic diversity of the area results in a variety of restaurants, coffee houses, local and regional theaters, galleries and entertainment, as well as arts-related businesses such as arts and crafts stores, designers, and art supply stores that support and extend the influence and economic vitality of the artists’ community. 

The Gateway Arts District is comprised of the four municipalities of Hyattsville, North Brentwood, Brentwood, and Mount Rainier along Route One.
