Bemidji, Minnesota

Challenge:

 

Help the Bemidji Community Art Center to identify a new building to replace an antiquated facility that is far too small to accommodate the organization's growing programs

Goals:

  • Prioritize buildings among several candidates
  • Help the staff and Board make a compelling case for funding and community support

Scope of Work:

Artspace conducted an extended Preliminary Feasibility Visit that included assessments of four potential candidate buildings and prepared a report that included a recommendation to choose one of the four buildings based on its size, location, flexibility, and cost.

Update: 

The Art Center has moved forward with a plan to acquire the building, hired an architect to design its new facility, and begun a capital campaign that uses our report as a major tool.
