Home to the iconic “Big Chair,” an advertising gimmick for Curtis Brothers Furniture, Anacostia also contains other artistic endeavors, including the Honfleur Gallery, which showcases the work of local and national artists and hosts a bi-monthly poetry series. Also a part of this area is the Anacostia Museum, which operates under the auspices of the Smithsonian.

Fort Dupont Park is home to tennis courts, playing fields and an ice skating rink. In the summer, live jazz concerts are performed weekly. The annual Martin Luther King Birthday Parade runs in the community every April.

The vibrant Town Hall Education Arts Recreation Campus here houses eleven different educational nonprofits and the Anacostia Playhouse hosts independent theater productions.
