Side Street Projects is an entirely mobile artist-run organization that gives artists of all ages the ability and means to support their creative endeavors. They teach artists how to roll up their sleeves and do things themselves with education programs that encourage self-reliance and creative problem solving in a contemporary art context. Each year they serve over 10,000 individual adult artists and over 2,500 children.
Support will go towards Public Anchors, a series of three site-specific installations at the agency’s new headquarters. Three artists will be commissioned to create new works that will allow Side Street to celebrate their new neighborhood by creating works that reflect that location. The project begins March of 2017 and is scheduled to be completed by September 2017.
