In keeping with its mission to support artists and other creative entrepreneurs, Good Arts is in the process of remodeling a street-level storefront into two retail spaces and two artists’ studios, all of which open onto a shared central gallery.
The Arcade will provide affordable space for the making, exhibiting, and selling of a range of creative goods, and foster a supportive community for the makers and sellers.
Flanked by the new Cherry Street Coffee House to the west, and the entrance to ’57 Biscayne Artist Studios to the east, Good Arts Arcade is perfectly situated for creative collaboration, fabulous combined events, and synergistic marketing opportunities. The location is well situated for foot traffic from the nearby light rail station, ferries, Pioneer Square park, and a planned streetcar stop at First and Cherry. A parklet will be installed on the street in front of the entrance, providing additional outdoor community space and a potential pop-up show venue.
We are seeking creative community builders–artists, gallerists, and human-scale retailers–to work, grow, and collaborate in the Arcade.
The spaces will be available September 1 and are still under construction: interior photos will be coming soon. This PDF has a floor plan, square footages, and prices: GoodArtsArcade. Please contact Jane to see the spaces in progress. On First Thursday, August 3, you can get a sneak peek at one of them, when we host Neon Dreamer, an art-meets-video-game pop-up.
