Dear PoP – Artist Studio Space Available in DC?

“Dear PoP,

I had a question for you that I thought might also be a question the rest of the community would be interested in.

I have a few friends who live in Chicago and are artists. In the city there are spaces available for an artist to rent studio space at a very low price (maybe 200/month for a small, bare room with a desk), and many people do that in order to have their own private workspace away from home. My question is this: Do you know of low-cost art space available in DC? A small room with a table would be more than sufficient, but it would be nice if the room was intentionally there for artists, and rental terms were flexible.

Any ideas?”

Hmm, I spoke with an artist who recommended the Artspace USA Web site. However, I only found some spots in Maryland (and lots in Minnesota…) I’ve heard some talk that there were preliminary talks about some artist lofts becoming available on North Captiol Street but I think that is far from concrete.

Do any artists out there know of any space available? Hipchickindc? Sean from Bloomingdale?
