Stamford, CT - The Loft Artists Association, a leading cultural organization that nurtures emerging artists, has found a new home in Stamford’s South End at 575 Pacific Street. With the help of Building and Land Technology, who will renovate the 7,000 sq. ft. space, it will be finished and ready for occupancy in September.
“As we celebrate 35 years of providing a supportive environment in which young artists can flourish, we also celebrate our new South End home,” said Ellen Gordon, president of the Loft Artists Association. “Together, we have found a location where our artists can continue to create and our organization can develop more programs and cultural events for the neighborhood.”
“We are pleased that we can keep this long standing institution of art and culture in the South End as the neighborhood continues to transform into a dynamic mixed-use area,” said Carl Kuehner, CEO, Building and Land Technology. “The Loft Artists are an important part of the community, and BLT has always been committed to working with the community to help make a better City for everyone.”
After long negotiations, it was decided that Building and Land Technology would renovate and finish the new space in exchange for the artists providing additional workshops and events for the people of the South End and the general public. The Loft Artists Association will continue their mission of fostering a supportive environment for artists and providing opportunities to exhibit their work and network within the community.
