When #saveartspace launched in Feb 2015, they mounted two successful and community-driven shows in Bushwick, Brooklyn and Miami, Florida, but never imagined that by year's end they would double that number going into 2016.
Now, having put on four public art exhibitions with 24 individual artist contributions ranging from underprivileged youth to senior groups to emerging as well as established visual artists, #saveartspace feels that they have exceeded their expectations of bringing positive cultural change to communities through artistic transformation. Below are just a few examples of the work they've helped artists display over the last year.
Almost half way through 2016, they aim to put on even more shows in even more cities across the United States, but they can't do it alone. With the help of your donations, #saveartspace can seek out new partners and erect more public art shows to beautify, educate, and enliven communities far and wide.
As of today, the average donation to #saveartspace is $14. If you feel like donating once and no more, your contribution is happily welcomed and your support is greatly appreciated. But if you opt to become a sustaining partner for $14 a month, you help in furthering their mission to bring art to the people and impact lasting positive cultural change everywhere they mount a show. All donations are tax deductible and go to producing public art—#saveartspace is for the people, by the people!
So join us in the #saveartspace movement and help to continue the mission of giving artists and community members a place to be seen, free of corporate influence or art world classism. Accessible public art produces more public and social good, so join our cause and help us #saveartspace!
Thanks and wishing you all the best,
