Artspace is a dynamic non-profit organization championing emerging artists and building new audiences for contemporary art_

Our 5,000 square foot space features a rotating set of thought-provoking exhibitions. Through our award-winning Student Apprenticeship Program (SAP), teens from New Haven Public Schools collaborate with professional artists on the creation of artworks and installations. Our annual City-Wide Open Studios festival showcases Connecticut artists in underutilized or vacant spaces.

Our mission is three fold: to catalyze artistic activities; connect contemporary artists, audiences, and resources; and to enrich art experiences and activate art spaces.
