Studios at 555

The studios are almost move-in ready for artists Susan Santer, Allen Frabutt, Sabrina Nelson,  Jessica Care Moore, and 555 staff member Elizabeth Sutton.  The creative space is starting to take shape.

 A few studios are still available ranging in size from 100-250 sq.ft. and jail cells at 35 sq.ft.. Studio artists have 24hour access, usage of flex space, participation in 555 Member Exhibits, discounts and an opportunity to help 555 build a creative community in the old police precinct.

555′s Artist Residency Program is accepting proposals for 2012-13. Please contact Erin Martinez at if you have questions.

555 is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit artist-run arts organization providing affordable studios and work space, gallery space, exhibition programs, arts education programs, an artist in residency program, and public arts.
