Mission Statement

Franklin Street Works is a new, not-for-profit contemporary art space, café, and social gathering place in Stamford, Connecticut. It produces original on-site and off-site exhibitions, artist projects, and related programming. Located in renovated row houses on Franklin Street, the two-story space includes three galleries and a café. Franklin Street Works embraces innovative art and exhibition practices, a DIY attitude, and a workshop approach to its programming, audiences, and organizational structure. The activities and attitudes of the café reflect and expand on the organization’s mission as a contemporary art venue.

Description

Franklin Street Works organizes approximately three original contemporary art exhibitions each year. Our projects, installations and performances take place in the space’s galleries and off site in public spaces and neighboring cultural venues. The staff and guest curators create new programming, which often involves commissioned artist projects. Most exhibitions include works by emerging artists and address current issues at play in contemporary art and curating.
