Julia Street Galleries
Five blocks of contemporary galleries
In the past few years numerous contemporary art galleries have opened up within a few blocks of each other in the Warehouse District, with the vast majority on Julia Street. Because of this, many people have taken to calling the area the Arts District. Wander down Julia between Church Street and Commerce Street and pop into as many of the nine galleries there as you would like. Once you are done there, check out the Stella Jones Gallery and the Martine Chaisson Gallery, which are both just a few blocks away. If you would like more information about each of these galleries, click the link below.
