Accepting Proposals – Ongoing
The Project Space, located at 10 N. Beaver St., is intended as a “lab” to display and cultivate new work in our community. Creative individuals and groups are invited to submit new or existing work. In addition to a free venue to show and potentially sell their artwork, Project Space exhibitors have the opportunity to teach special workshops at Creative York during their exhibit.
