Broadway Arts Center Project Receives $470,000 ArtPlace Grant

The Broadway Arts Center, an ambitious project proposing a mixed-use development containing a blackbox theater, art gallery, creative commercial space, and affordable housing for artists along the Historic Broadway Corridor, has just received a $470,000 grant - the largest national grant to be awarded - from the prestigious ArtPlace collaboration.

Broadway Arts Center project partners include Councilmember José Huizar's Bringing Back Broadway, the City of Los Angeles Department of Cultural Affairs, Actors Fund, ArtSpace, the California Institute of the Arts (CalArts), and Pritzker prize winning architect Thom Mayne and Morphosis Architects.

SCI-Arc's creative placemaking project for Downtown L.A. receives an ArtPlace grant in the amount of $400,000. Cornerstone Theater Company and Esperanza Community Housing Corporation will also receive funding.

ArtPlace is a new national collaboration of 11 major national and regional foundations, six of the nation's largest banks, and eight federal agencies, including the National Endowment for the Arts,
dedicated to transforming communities with strategic investments in the arts.
