The New Guard: Duane Gautier

Duane Gautier

CEO and president, Arch Development Corporation

Duane Gautier is giving new life to one of DC’s most neglected areas. The head of Arch Development Corporation, a nonprofit founded to help revitalize Anacostia through the arts, has established galleries, music and poetry events, and other opportunities for artists, such as a three-month showcase of their work in vacant spaces. He points to neighborhoods that have been aided by the arts—such as Liverpool, England, and New York’s SoHo—as evidence that a similar approach can rejuvenate Anacostia.
