Artists’ Row consists of four artist ‘stalls’, a restaurant, and a public restroom and is centrally located in historic downtown Salem at 24 New Derby St., across from Old Town Hall and Derby Square. This area, at the heart of the City, was originally built as a marketplace and continues to be a thriving public plaza and pedestrian way.

We believe that bringing diverse individuals together through the Arts allows us to collectively and more effectively address the issues that face our communities.
