Five Points is pleased to announce the opening of a new initiative, The Incubator Space. The 600 sq. ft. studio was developed to accommodate emerging artists by allowing them space at an extremely reasonable rate.
We are excited to offer another opportunity which enriches, educates and inspires the artistic lifestyle of a talented and diverse community. As we add another layer to the arts and culture community of downtown Torrington, our hope is that the enthusiasm will spread and encourage the repurposing of other vacant spaces for the arts.
The Incubator Space is located at 5 Water Street, directly above Five Points Gallery. The space is currently occupied by three local artists. A waiting list has been started for other artists who may be interested when space becomes available.
For more information or to add your name to the waiting list please call the gallery at 860.618.7222.
The Five Points Incubator Studios enabled the collaboration and creation of The Five Points, University of Hartford/Hartford Art School Launchpad Initiative.
Five Points Center for the Visual Arts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
