Artspace is a non-profit organization that uses tools of real estate development to create affordable, appropriate places where artist can live and work. Because Artspace owns each of the projects it develops, they are able to ensure affordability and accessibility to artist in perpetuity. Over the last three decades, Artspace has led an accelerating national movement of artist-led community transformation. While embracing the value that art brings to individual lives, Artspace has championed the once-radical idea that artist living on the edge of poverty and chronically underfunded arts organizations can leverage fundamental social change. With headquarters in Minneapolis and offices in Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Seattle and Washington D.C., Artspace is America’s leading developer of arts facilities and has served as a consultant to hundreds of communities and arts organizations nationwide.
