By supporting the Artspace Annual Fund, you can help preserve our 40+ existing projects as places where artists thrive and community is built. The Annual Fund also helps Artspace identify and advance new projects across the country, and it allows us to work closely with government officials, banks, community development agencies, and other civic institutions to understand how they can put artists at the heart of positive, sustainable community development.
We asked Artspace artists from all over the country to tell us why working and/or living in an Artspace building matters to them, from their point of view, and why Artspace matters to their community. Thanks to Seven and Sixty Productions for producing this great video!
