A Dose of Culture in Adams Morgan

CRAIG MEKLIR AUGUST 18, 2016

If you’re in Adams Morgan and you’re feeling fine, stop in to Morton Fine Art and get a dose of culture.

Adams Morgan may be best known for its bars and nightlife, but you should visit during the day and check out Morton — it’s quiet and dignified, but edgy and au courant.

Morton Fine Art wears many hats. They want you to come look at the art and appreciate it, but they also want you to start collecting it. Morton offers advice to the burgeoning collector via a professional consultant. Not only will they help you choose the art, they’ll come to your home or office and install it for you in the best possible spot. You’ll grow to love it more every day.

Their dynamic model of changing exhibits means you always get a fresh selection. And because some of the most educated art minds are selecting what hangs on the gallery’s walls, you know you’re choosing from only the best.

Gallery owner and founder Amy Morton says an important part of collecting art is knowing what you like, and the best way to learn is to look at as many different types of art as possible. So get out there and spend some time in some of the DMV’s smaller galleries!

Morton’s, 1781 Florida Ave. NW, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m.

Highlights of DC’s Adams Morgan

13 Apr

Attached is a link to a 2 minute video aimed at bringing exposure to the Adams Morgan District of Washington, DC.  Morton Fine Art is located in Lower Adams Morgan, at the cross roads of Dupont Circle, Logan Circle and Adams Morgan.  The video gives a good feel for why this is the ‘Real DC’ with all of its cultural diversity and thriving small businesses, boutiques, restaurants, and night spots.
