ABOUT THE SURVEY
Artspace will conduct a major online survey of artists, arts organizations, and creative businesses in the City of Mount Clemens area to determine the size and nature of the market for an Artspace mixed-use project in the community. The 8-week survey will be launched with a free public event at 7:00PM on February 4, 2020, at the Anton Art Center. The event is open to all; artists and directors of arts organizations and creative businesses are especially encouraged to attend.

Artspace, the nation’s leading developer for the arts, will use the survey to identify the types and number of spaces needed by the City of Mount Clemens’s artists, the amenities and special features that are of interest to them. The results of the survey will help Artspace determine the size of the market in the City of Mount Clemens for affordable live/work housing, studio and work space of various kinds.

This survey is the second phase of a scope of work that began in February 2019 when an Artspace team conducted a Preliminary Feasibility Study in Mount Clemens. If the survey identifies a market for an Artspace project and the community decides to proceed, survey results will inform both the project concept and site selection. They will also impact specific design and programmatic decisions, such as square footage, parking spaces, types of shared creative spaces to include, rents, etc. Artists who take the survey will have the option of being among the first to be informed of project developments, including leasing opportunities.

The Anton Art Center’s Executive Director, Phil Gilchrist sees community support as a major component of the survey. “This is an exciting development that will positively impact Mount Clemens and Macomb County. I look forward to seeing what the future holds. The fact that there is an Artspace in Dearborn really speaks to the vibrancy of the Arts in southeastern Michigan in general.”
