Performance space "Art of Noize" reopens on Upshur Street

Opened in 2017, Art of Noize is a multipurpose artist and performance space that showcases artwork and creativity. They had the lease on Georgia Ave terminated when the building owner sold the building with little notice. Owner Adrian Ferguson knew he wanted to stay in Petworth and began to look for a new location.

He found it at 821 Upshur Street NW, in the 2nd floor space behind Taqueria del Barrio.

Art of Noize gives artists a place to showcase their talents in an intimate setting.

Art of Noize hosts various events, include what they describe as their signature “Music & Manicure” event, offering a variety of artistic media and performance disciplines in a “living room” setting, each reflecting one of our three pillars: art, film and music.

Their first event is Thursday, May 16 at 7pm called, “DEEP NOIZE,” a gathering for artists, creatives, and enthusiasts. The event is for people who appreciate real music and a chill vibe in a speakeasy setting. The $10 cover is pretty small, and includes entry and food. (Hey, vegan options available!) It’s BYOB. The plan is make this a monthly event every 3rd Thursday. If you want to keep up with the art space, you can join their mailing list on their website.

Welcome back to Petworth, Art of Noize!
