Red Dirt is a warehouse studio for a small group of independently practicing artists and creative professionals, from fresh out of school to nationally known.  We share resources, offer critical feedback and push each other toward greater professionalism in our work. It’s a space for projects, ideas and community exchange. There's an incredible variety of style, approach and media with a shared commitment to serious work.  We encourage artists to partner with local businesses and organizations, to find ways that artists can help the community and the community can help artists.

At its core, Red Dirt is about what can happen when talented, smart and curious people come together and work toward greater accomplishment in their professional practice. It’s about drawing on the resources of artistic community and giving back.

4051 34th Street, Mt. Rainier, MD 20712

Red Dirt bought a firehouse! We bought the building in September 2014, moved in April 2015, and had our Grand Opening in November that same year. We are so grateful for the community fundraising effort toward our renovation. Come visit and see your donations at work!
