Mid-Market District awarded NEA Grant

Last week Gray Area was pleased to receive the news that our district has been awarded a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. Gray Area executive director, Josette Melchor, met this week with a group of civic, community, and arts leaders, and Rocco Landesman, Chairman of the NEA. The diverse group of arts leaders, developers, academics, and urban planners gathered together to look at the mid-Market District as an example of arts-branded urban revitalization. Among topics under discussion was the existing models for the creation and support of affordable working space for artists.

We are looking forward to hosting all sorts of new media events, exhibits, workshops, and symposia with this new and wonderful opportunity given to us!
