18th Street Arts Center's mission is to provoke public dialogue through contemporary art-making.
18th Street Arts Center is an artists’ residency program that provokes public dialogue through contemporary art-making. We value art-making as an essential part of a vibrant, just, and healthy society. Through our artist residencies we are a contemporary art hub that fosters inter-cultural collaboration and dialogue. 18th Street’s residencies, exhibitions, public events, talks, and publications encourage, showcase, and support the creation of cutting-edge contemporary art and foster collaboration and interaction between artists locally, nationally, and internationally.
I had a wonderful night of jazz music and great people; the coordinator Lauren was very friendly and approachable. The night flew by; my friend and I both enjoyed a great night with this fantastic organization!
