Up.St.ART Annapolis

Up.St.ART Annapolis stands for Up Street Art. Upper West street has been designated as the Arts and Entertainment district in Annapolis. U.A. is a quarterly publication that highlights the creative people and businesses that make Annapolis such a rich cultural city. From musicians to artist to community activists to champions of the arts, U.A.’s goal is not just to shine a light on the great works of art created here but to go in depth about the people and businesses behind the arts. We love what these people do, now we want you to know why they do what they do.
