This space for art
Local artists and performance groups have until Saturday to apply for space in the 2019 slate of the city’s Artist Access Program, which was created to more fully use four local cultural centers as a resource for the creative class. Eligible artists, who must become cultural contractors with the city, have until midnight Saturday to submit an application and enroll in the panel evaluation process in January that ranks submissions as part of the space negotiation period that begins in February. Spaces are available from Oct. 1, 2019, through Sept. 30, 2020. The program’s guidelines and application are available here.
