Space 4 Art simultaneously functions as a contemporary art space and an arts enrichment center for underserved groups representing a broad cross section of San Diego’s vibrant and diverse communities.
Space 4 Art is located in San Diego's East Village, an “urban frontier” where high-rise condominiums, homeless tent cities, and the historic barrio collide. Much of the existing low-income housing and service organizations are permanent fixtures that cannot be driven out by gentrification. Space 4 Art serves as a meeting space where diversity can be explored and celebrated through art.
Our facility is centrally located and accessible via two main transit centers. It is a vibrant and informal setting which houses 40 artists between the ages of 22 and 70 working in a variety of disciplines. Space 4 Art provides a place where students, families and communities connect with the arts and with professional working artists.
