Locust Projects, an experimental exhibition space located in the Design District, turns 15 this year, and has planned a full schedule of projects and special events for a year long celebration.

15th Anniversary Celebration

“Since our move in 2012 into a new 5,000 square foot exhibition space in the heart of the Design District, we now have more than twice as much space to truly focus on better meeting our mission to serve artists and the community,” said Chana Sheldon, executive director of Locust Projects. “The needs of the artists and the community are far and wide. With our new space we can program more exhibitions, as well as provide new opportunities for artists atour weekly Roundtables, Locust Talks, our lecture/studio visit series and our public art initiative Out of the Box.” Exhibition spaces include Main Gallery, Project Room and the Lobby Gallery.

Locust Projects, founded by artists in 1998, continues to be driven by and responsive to artists’ needs. “Our mission is to provide what artists need to experiment with new ideas and methods without the limitations or sales pressure of conventional exhibition spaces,” explains Ms. Sheldon. “It is our desire to offer public exposure and professional support for contemporary artists, and to provide an approachable contemporary art venue for the public.”

Locust Projects’ programming includes exhibitions, lectures, educational workshops, public commissions and professional development programs, all free and open to the public.
