Art Exchange Project
The Art Exchange is intended to provide a permanent and affordable workplace for the development and production of art by local artists. The Exchange would operate on a profit-centered business model where artists sell directly to the public and are connected to networking opportunities that would help promote an art community for the City. Project components include artist studios, multipurpose/classroom space, hot shop for glass and ceramics production, a centrally located open courtyard, gallery space, office, and service areas. The project totals approximately 10,150 sf of building area on a 15,000 sf site (0.34 acres) with ~5,150 sf in new floor area which will complement the existing building at 240 Long Beach Blvd and use similar open truss structural systems. The project will utilize the Acres of Books building by renovating and reusing the front 5,000 sf (50 foot wide street frontage and 100 foot depth), maintaining the façade on Long Beach Boulevard. The project building will use an open floor plan to take advantage of the existing clear span structural system along with adjustable wall systems to create studios and other spaces that can change for future needs. Sustainable plans for this project include obtaining LEED certification at a minimum of the Silver level as well as compliance with the City's Green Building Code.
