The second edition of A Guide to Downtown Art Spaces is now available, listing venues that display original art, both commercial and non-profit organizations devoted specifically to art, as well as businesses for which visual art is an ancillary feature.
The brochure lists each venues physical address, phone number, website address and hours of operation. It also features a map showing each venues location.
The project has been coordinated by Mobile Arts Council, which hosts a monthly meeting of representatives of downtown art spaces, open to anyone who would like to be involved. Dee Cariglino (dee c. design) is responsible for the look and layout of the publication, and the printing was funded by the City of Mobile.
This project is another example of the cooperative spirit that is the hallmark of the Mobile arts community, notes Mobile Arts Councils Executive Director Bob Burnett. And it provides a practical way for downtown art spaces to support one another by ensuring that the public is aware of all of them.
