The Temporium engages with the H Street community in the creative and economic development of DC.
By Anna Jacoby
A new venue is coming to contribute to the steady stream of creativity and vivaciousness of H Street: The Temporium. Presented by the Green Door Advisors and The Pink Line Project, the Temporium will showcase some of DC’s top designers and artists from July 23 through August 15. Over 20 DC-based fashion, art, home deco, and jewelry designers will showcase and sell their creations, including: Dana Greaves, Derringer Friday, Bill Johnson, Kristi Rigss, Hugh & Crye, among many others. Local musicians, DJs, and performance artists will perform on the opening and closing weekends of the Temporium.
Temporium’s opening even helps fulfill the Creative DC Action Agenda, which outlines a strategy to strengthen the District’s creative economy, and Retail Action Strategy, which examines ways to strengthen the city’s retail base and promote vibrant commercial districts—an area of which the H Street neighborhood has been increasingly evolving into.
