Jumpstart economic revitalization of Monmouth’s Downtown Historic District by identifying a suitable building for a new arts facility near the existing Buchanan Center for the Arts
- Identify a suitable building out of seven candidates
- Identify one or more arts-related uses for the selected building
Scope of Work
Over two days, Artspace toured the candidate buildings and met with key stakeholders to determine the space needs of Monmouth artists, including faculty and students of Monmouth College. We then prepared a report that included recommendations to use one of the buildings for working studios for area artists and to have the Buchanan Center for the Arts manage the new facility as part of its programming. We also provided a conceptual plan, interior and exterior renderings, a capital budget, cost estimates, and an operating plan.
The community is following up by raising funds to implement the plan.
