The Arts in Found Places. A Report.
Educational Facilities Labs., Inc., New York, NY.
The experiences of several hundred arts projects across the country are distilled and illustrated in a report that communicates the variety and importance of the arts activities and how their use of found space has helped to stabilize and upgrade many communities. A mix of building types, a variety of arts activity, and broad geographic representation are included in an attempt to illuminate problems and creative solutions. The arts projects described and photographed are housed in facilities that formerly were (1) storefronts and other small-scale commercial spaces, (2) industrial and farm buildings, (3) specialized buildings in the private sector, (4) public buildings, (5) residential properties, and (6) whole neighborhoods. The last section of the report offers advice on planning, working out program budgets, phase development, obtaining professional assistance, and special aspects of housing the arts. The names and addresses of the organizations mentioned or described in the text are listed. (MLF)
