Building for the Future

For the past five years, we have hosted artists and writers in a small studio apartment above a garage. While this has served us well the space has limited our ability to host artists requiring larger studio space, collaborating artists, artists requiring special accommodations and parent artists.

Building Plan:

Good Hart Artist Residency

In the spring of 2018, we began construction on a 1,100 square foot residence and a separate but co-located 576 square foot studio. The expected completion date is June 2019.

The new facility will allow us to:

  • operate year-round
  • host collaborating artists or writers
  • provide reasonable accommodations for those with disabilities
  • provide a dedicated studio space
  • host parent artists/writers

The new facility is located at 910 N. Lamkin Road, less than a 1/8th of a mile from our current location.
