ARTSpring is an experiment in strengthening cultures through original art programs, including:

  • Art creation workshops
  • Art tours and talks
  • Festivals and events that highlight art experiences
  • Public art installations
  • Related publications and interactive media

We generate concepts, manage projects, disseminate information and generally function as a “hub” connecting arts practitioners with the public to create meaningful art experiences.

If you have ideas for a project or are seeking inspiration or new directions for your organization please get in touch!
