We are relocating to Riverside and Pleasant Valley Rd!
We are excited that after many months of searching, with the efforts of many people and organizations, we have found our new home near Riverside and Pleasant Valley Rd! We look forward to this great new beginning starting this fall.
We first want to thank those that contributed in the first part of our Fundraising Campaign, we raised over $4000! Additional funding is needed to help defray the costs of moving, build-out and furnishing the new space. Your donation, in any amount, will help us with this effort to keep arts alive in Austin.
Also be sure to check RSVP for the New Beginnings Farewell Fundraiser this June 23rd from 7pm to 11pm
Everybody who donates will receive a sneak peek before our grand opening this fall!
We are still working on the details, here’s what we can share with you now:
Our space capacity is increasing by 30% (almost 20,000 sq ft!)
We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit dedicated to providing affordable working studios and arts facilities to emerging and established artists, and serve the community with year-round gallery exhibition programming, art creating and teaching facilities, and are a major stop on the East Austin Studio Tour each year, a testament to the great work of our members.
Our history began in 2005 with a few artists, an old empty warehouse, and a substantial amount of initiative. In the course of thirteen years, Pump Project’s iconic warehouse had become a staple of the Austin art community by providing exhibition facilities and affordable studio space for hundreds of artists over the years.
Our community of over 40 artists has been proud to call this bright yellow warehouse on Shady Lane home. While we are saddened that the building has been sold, despite endless efforts to preserve the beloved iconic arts space, we are looking forward as we reemerge at our new location this fall – hope to see you there.
