Artspace will break ground on its first Colorado project, the Artspace Loveland Arts Campus, this month.
The $8.9 million Artspace Loveland development is a sustainable, mixed-use, community arts campus project in downtown Loveland, consisting of three parts: a new 30-unit affordable live/work facility for low-income artists and their families; the historic Loveland Feed & Grain building, which will be transformed into community space, artist studios, and a home for creative businesses; and landscaped outdoor community space tying the two buildings together as one arts campus.
The residential units will be reserved for artists whose household income is less than 60 percent of the area median income for Larimer County.
The Feb. 14 groundbreaking is the first of several that Artspace will hold this year for new projects.
Artspace is the nation’s leader in artist-led community transformation, with 35 projects in operation across the country and another dozen in development.
The organization is headquartered in Minneapolis and has offices in Los Angeles, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington D.C. To date, it has completed more than 1,000 affordable live/work units for artists and their families as well as more than a million square feet of nonresidential space for artists and arts organizations.
