Community Meeting: Artspace

Community Meeting Artspace Information

Imagine creating spaces for artists to live and work here in Wheat Ridge.

This year, the City of Wheat Ridge and Localworks agreed to fund a feasibility study to assess bringing Artspace to our community. Artspace, a nationally successful program, creates live/work spaces for artists. 

As part of the feasibility study, an open community meeting about Artspace is scheduled for February 6, 2020.


This will be an open community meeting for residents, business owners, creatives and art lovers like you to:

  • learn about Artspace and its possibilities for Wheat Ridge
  • discuss economic and community impact of the arts 
  • help determine our community’s need and interest in an Artspace project
  • build support for this project while addressing your questions


Thursday, February 6, 2020 6-7:30 p.m.
