a fundraising campaign to subsidize art studio rent for sarasota artists

If we meet our $8000 goal, SPAACES Art Studio Program will offer affordable studio space to artists for a one-year term. Though it is small in scale, only able to subsidize two artists a time, the project hopes to grow and expand into multiple studio spaces in the future. SPAACES is the only subsidized studio opportunity for artists in the artsy city of Sarasota, FL. Marianne Chapel saw a need in the community and created a plan to turn a 1000 square foot industrial space into newly renovated, air conditioned, series of artist studios, and with this fund drive we can offer two studios for just $200/month.


Support our campaign through the FRACTURED ATLAS platform to give tax- deductible donation. SPAACES needs to raise a minimum of $80,000 in programmatic and operational funding per year to support our flagship programs and operations. We have two main priorities in the next year—opening our first three affordable ($200/month) studio spaces and recruiting three individuals to join our board of directors.
