100arts represents the creative branch of 100state. As part of an organization that champions the intersection between art, education and entrepreneurship, we push to create space for artists in the professional world. Artists, like other professionals, are freelancers, small business owners, educators, mentors and organizers. All professionals need access to resources and we believe that an emphasis on community building builds for better businesses. As a result, we host art exhibitions, an Artist-in-Residence program and are developing our brand new art studio.
Our AiR program provides a stepping stone for emerging artists entering the professional world. In exchange for free membership and studio access for 6 months, artists curate the exhibitions in the space and work as in-house resources for a variety of creative needs our community might have. Our AiR have hosted socially progressive exhibitions, designed beer labels, built tables, filmed events, hosted artist talks and more as members of 100state. Now that we have a dedicated art space, we aim to extend those services to include art workshops and professional printing services. More information on the art space coming soon!
