To create a place in Iowa City for education, practice, exhibition and collaboration in fine arts and crafts.
The Time is Now
The ArtiFactory will be a place in which to learn and practice the visual arts and fine crafts in a community of artisans that represent a broad spectrum of interests and abilities, a place that encourages cross-fertilization, and offers a multipurpose venue that can be used by artists from the community to connect, teach, and perform.
We are at a critical time in Iowa City’s history. We who live here have the opportunity, therefore the obligation, to design the best Iowa City for the 21st century, and beyond. With new developments planned for the Riverfront Crossing District and the reconfiguration of many university buildings in the downtown area, now is the ideal time for an arts center to take root.
The ArtiFactory is a project of Arts Iowa City, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
