|ABOUT ARTSPACE||PRESS ROOM||SPACE RENTAL||PEOPLE||DIRECTIONS|
Our 5, 000 square foot space in a former civil-war era furniture factory anchors an affordable housing complex and features an always rotating set of thought-provoking exhibitions. Through our award-winning apprenticeship program, teams of teens from New Haven Public Schools collaborate with esteemed professional artists on the creation of major new artworks and installations. Through our popular City-Wide Open Studios festival, now in its 17th year, nearly 2 million square feet of underutilized or vacant space have been activated and showcased for the benefit of artists and their supporters.
Our mission is three fold: to catalyze artistic activities; connect contemporary artists, audiences, and resources; and to enrich art experiences and activate art spaces.
