Since its founding in 1988, 18th Street Arts Center has supported the creative endeavors of thousands of artists – exhibiting, performing, composing, living, and working – at 18th Street Arts Center.
Our capacity is growing, and we now have over 50 professional artists on our campus annually working to push artistic boundaries and create new socially-relevant art works that provoke and promote dialogue.
