The Vista, Columbia’s premier art district, is committed to continuing to keep the art scene in the Midlands thriving, as the past three decades attest. The Vista was synonymous with art by the early 1980s when artists began to move their studios to the area’s affordable abandoned warehouse space. Today’s restaurants, shopping and nightlife in historic buildings along the Gervais Street corridor are still driven by the Vista’s creative energy.
