Asheville RAD (River Arts District)

Nothing against Element Clay, one of the first studios that drew attention to RAD (but which has since moved to Savannah), but the RAD is so much more than pottery. The River Arts District is a community of over 200 artists, most of whom have open working studios (visit and watch them work, ask questions etc). It's an old gritty warehouse district where the artists have rehabbed buildings, and now includes, restaurants and other eclectic businesses......a dog wash, dog training, doctors, a small theater, a middle school for girls, and apartments. Hosting two studio strolls a year when everyone is open, free trolley rides to explore, special demos by artists and food trucks.
