Artspace is a non-profit organization bringing communities together with emerging local and national artists.  The Artspace exhibition program provides the opportunity for over 100 emerging and contemporary artists to show in the main gallery site on Orange Street through solo and group exhibitions.  Our award winning youth programs pair New Haven high school students with art educators and artist mentors through long-term professional development programs.  Our program of offsite exhibitions utilizes unusual indoor spaces and creative outdoor spaces to provide unique contexts for contemporary art. For example, more than 2 million square feet of empty and underutilized space throughout New Haven has been activated for the benefit of artists and audiences, through the annual City-Wide Open Studios festival.

If you enjoy our programs and believe in what we do, please consider making a contribution.

  • Commit to prepare today’s teens in the New Haven Public School district to succeed through such programs as our annual Summer Apprenticeship.
  • And, most directly, position Artspace and the artist community for excellence and sustainability for the next 30 years and beyond.

As part of its' mission, Artspace seeks to foster existing local, institutional resources for the benefit of artists and audiences alike. Artspace recognizes that corporate supporters and granting organizations increasingly have less funds to give, but can provide alternative forms of support that are equally valuable. In-kind support (not including volunteer time) covers nearly half of the organizational budget. For instance, the New Haven Advocate prints and distributes the Open Studios map and guide, saving the organization over $30,000 in printing and mailing costs.  Our In-Kind partners include: Firehouse 12, Foster’s Restaurant, Town of Hamden, City of New Haven, Livable Cities Initiative, Ninth Square Partnership LP, Svigals Architects, Yale University, Viacom Outdoor, and others.
