Artists Marketplace

Arena Stage Theater Artists Marketplace trailblazes a new model for regional theaters to connect art, artists and their artistry directly with the public. The Marketplace gives the public the opportunity to commission or purchase a work of art safely, with no in-person contact, from the artists and artisans who have graced Arena’s stages. The pandemic disrupted the ability for artists and theaters to earn income. When you make a purchase through the Marketplace, you are generating much-needed financial support for artists and a percentage supports Arena Stage.

There are 33 artists and over 100 works of art, lessons, or commissioning opportunities currently on the Marketplace. Use the arrows that border each section to see more options and click “purchase” to learn about the artist and the details of their service or product. Check back often as more Arena Stage artists and their works will be added over time.

Looking for a gift and can’t decide? Consider purchasing a gift certificate for a friend to apply to the Marketplace.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions at
