A SPACE for the Arts

SPACE was born of a need and a passion for the arts in our community. 
Five years ago we set out to create a place where families, friends, and neighbors of South Pasadena and surrounding areas could meet, create and share, where people of all ages and backgrounds could come to learn from each other, where the world class fine artist would meet up with the impassioned novice to build bridges through the language of art. 
The dream is being fulfilled. SPACE has provided arts education to thousands of students and adults through classes, camps, workshops and artist-in-residence programs in local schools. SPACE has hosted over 50 exhibitions of local artists in its gallery, and produced literary and music events. SPACE is the anchor of an emerging arts district in downtown South Pasadena. 
As a non-profit, SPACE belongs to the community, and needs your support to continue making an impact. 

The fees charged for classes and art sales do not cover the actual costs of running an arts center. We are applying for grants, seeking corporate sponsorships, but we need you to help us bridge this gap.

We want to continue fulfilling the arts needs in our community and beyond. 

You can provide art supplies for a free family art activity. ($50)
You can provide 30 students with an art lesson. ($150)
You can send a child to summer arts camp. ($250)
You can sponsor an art exhibit by an upcoming artist. ($1,000)
Any amount you donate will make a difference. 
SPACE educates. SPACE inspires. SPACE touches lives. SPACE makes the community better. Thank you for being a pART of SPACE.

Since 2008 SPACE has been a big supporter of my work. Their first exhibition featured my work and they have created many opportunities for me over the last five years. Through SPACE I was able to work with children in the community through work shops and classes. Through the support of the community and patrons of the arts, a couple of my prints purchased at SPACE were incorporated into the set of the television series Modern Family, and were recently highlighted in November 2013's issue of Entertainment Weekly.

Their contribution to the arts and to the education of children is immeasurable. You too can contribute by donating to their cause today...
