Artists Studios & Apartments
Amy Stacey Curtis is looking for artists to make this amazing space possible.
Amy has been given the opportunity to create affordable studios for herself and other artists in an incredible 5,500 space in Lewiston/Auburn—to build and manage a shared, creative space with a gallery for its members and other community events like evening workshops, talks, and gatherings.
Amy wants to build out 15 or more individual studios ranging from $300 to $800/month. Managing and accommodating this artist community would be her job (Amy has said she always has to have a job; she’s an installation artist) in downtown Lewiston where she’s moving her life and practice, on November 1.
There’s a growing creative community here and apartments from $700 to $1,600/month. Amy has said she will even help artists move.
Please email Amy directly firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions or an interest in working with her in Lewiston/Auburn.
