Artspace is committed to increasing accessibility and broadening access to the arts; we believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience the creative process. Everyone is welcome at Artspace.

Masks are currently optional, though strongly encouraged, in the public areas of our building. Individual artist studios may have additional requirements; signs will be posted outside their studios.
