Hopkins Artspace Engagement Sessions are
December 14 and 16

Building on the strength of the arts community in Hopkins, the City and Artspace, a nonprofit developer of affordable spaces for artists, are working together to explore the feasibility of creating new affordable live/work housing for artists on Lot 800, a City-owned parking lot on the northwest corner of 1st Street N and 10th Avenue N. We’d like to hear from you!
Come to an engagement session to share your ideas and work with architects, artists and community members on design possibilities for the site. There are two sessions to choose from: 

  • Saturday, December 14, at House of Dance (5 7th Avenue N) from 2:30 to 4 p.m.
  • Monday, December 16, at the Hopkins Center for the Arts (1111 Mainstreet) from 6:30 to 8 p.m. 
You are welcome to attend either session, but space is limited at House of Dance, so if you are able to attend the session on December 16 at the Hopkins Center for the Arts, you are encouraged to do so.

Find more information about the project here.
