Artspace Community Arts Center has quite a long history in Greenfield, Massachusetts. Founded in 1973, beginning its journey up the hill at the original 1880 Greenfield Public Library on 7 Franklin Street. Initially, this community center was referred to as The Arts Council of Franklin County, started by a collective of Franklin County parents seeking more out-of-school arts experiences for their children.
In 2000 the Valley Community Music School merged with The Arts Council of Franklin County, creating the multi-disciplinary community center that we know and love - Artspace Community Arts Center!
Since 2007, Artspace has called 15 Mill Street home, hosting hundreds of classes, art exhibits, and community events.
The Artspace Team
Artspace Community Arts Center is made possible by our small but mighty team of Artspace Staff Members + Board of Directors, working together to support our instructors, classes, performances, events, and community collaborations!
