Explore CHDC's Work Arts & Culture

Clinton/Hell's Kitchen has long been a neighborhood with a strong presence of artists and arts groups. Development pressure threatened the existence of many small theaters and affordable artist spaces. In response, CHDC worked with local stakeholders to develop and maintain affordable spaces for artists and arts organizations. Our company also provides technical support to arts organizations seeking to develop new facilities.

We hope you will enjoy visiting the vibrant theaters, cultural centers and galleries in the neighborhood.
