We encourage artists to extend their practice outside of the studio into the social context. Through mentorship, commission-based practices, and public art opportunities, artists foster a positive, creative environment that enriches lives and honors culture and history.


We support people and ideas so that they can do the same. Our programs cultivate independent change agents by creating sustainable opportunities for artists, young mothers, small businesses, and Third Ward residents


We share a neighborhood with Third Ward residents, and this includes its challenges. We remain dedicated to the culture and history here and work alongside residents to directly address changes that affect this community.
