Best Arts District Booster

Marc Abelman

Marc Abelman—with his wife, Jill—is one of the principals of InsideStyle, an Arts District design studio that creates sophisticated and modern interior spaces. That’s enough to keep anyone busy, but Marc does much more: He’s a nearly tireless advocate of the Arts District’s people, attractions and businesses, from social media to City Hall, and his is invariably the first name we come up with when we need to make a personal or professional connection in that burgeoning ’hood. “He only knows how to say ‘yes,’” says Arts District business owner Graham Kahr. “Marc stops at nothing to bring up the people around him.” And the people Abelman lifts up are bringing up an entire neighborhood with them.
