Artspace Mount Clemens
Attention all artists, arts & culture organizations, creative community members, businesses, and arts supporters.
About the Project
Artspace conducted a major online survey of artists, arts organizations, and creative businesses in the City of Mount Clemens area to determine the size and nature of the market for an Artspace mixed-use project in the community. The 6-week survey was launched with a free public event on February 4, 2020, at the Anton Art Center.
Artspace, the nation’s leading developer for the arts, will use the survey to identify the types and number of spaces needed by the City of Mount Clemens’s artists, the amenities and special features that are of interest to them. The results of the survey will help Artspace determine the size of the market in the City of Mount Clemens for affordable live/work housing, studio and work space of various kinds.
This survey is the second phase of a scope of work that began in February 2019 when an Artspace team conducted a Preliminary Feasibility Study in Mount Clemens. If the survey identifies a market for an Artspace project and the community decides to proceed, survey results will inform both the project concept and site selection. They will also impact specific design and programmatic decisions, such as square footage, parking spaces, types of shared creative spaces to include, rents, etc. Artists who take the survey will have the option of being among the first to be informed of project developments, including leasing opportunities.
