Artscape is a not-for-profit organization that
makes space for creativity and transforms communities.
is a landscape, civil, beautiful,
where the artist is citizen, at last
and again, where the city survives
because it imagines
more than it earns,
and so deserves itself.
it is the space between lovers of the city,
that lifestyle is not a place of grace,
Artscape is the weave
between the immense and the lonely,
between the deaf and those full of music,
it is a city block looking, not for its owner,
but for a casual afternoon between the
Artscape is the architecture
of the space between people,
without which the towers will fall.
Until the space is the art of the people
with the genius of love
we will not have the city
until creativity is the air we breathe,
until intimacy is restored with imagination,
we will not rest;
until then, thank you Artscape
happy birthday, and congratulations
for being a beautiful idea.
