  • “wearable art, accessories, jewelry, to fine art, paintings, photography and sculpture”!?

    And here I thought it was a shop for people who want to add a level to their rowhouses.

  • I would like to beat the crap out of whoever decided to call it AdMo…

  • this is actually a great idea. hope the space works well for it.

  • Seems a good idea, esp in that large, vacant retail space. Looked inside, impressed with wide variety in all prices and numerous different types of items. Truly something for everyone. But Mt Pleasant had a Circulator stop right in front of it. And with no metro stop, wonder how it will affect this one.

  • This is great, so much art is around in this city (e.g., museums) and yet I like supporting the artists who live here.

  • Stopped in Adams Morgan for the quick look on Friday, was most impressive to see the large selection of such different items. Nice ladies let me in to see. Like art by new black artist and also made the note of things good for the children.
