2,640 views 43 items 827 votes 129 voters 2 followers

List of the best cities for artists. Art culture is a rare aspect of any community, especially in small towns. So many cities are lacking in large museums, various galleries, small art vendors, and other staples of an artistic community. For artists, young and more seasoned alike, it can be frustrating to live in a town where the artistic lifestyle isn’t appreciated as much as it should be. This list is the answer to the question, “what is the best city for a budding artist to live?”

 

Artistically inclined cities, from the welcoming community of San Francisco to the southwestern style in Albuquerque, are filled with opportunities for new artists, as well as those who have been artists for decades. Whether you want to travel to one of these artistic cities to take a gander at the exquisite museums and get inspired or try to showcase your own work for your big break, there’s a city that’s calling your name on this list.

 

The cities on this list have plenty of venues for artistic achievement for new and up and coming artists to illustrate their talent. From independent art shops to large metropolitan museums, these cities are heaven for the artist at heart. 

List Criteria: Top U.S. cities with flourishing artist communities, galleries, art schools, etc.
