Ceiling project #1

Donation protected
I am Madeleine Ahlborn, a painter, poet, playwright, photographer, and performer. I have been an artist my entire life and have always struggled to find a space to work continuously. I've had multiple art studios in Boston, MA (where I received my BFA at TUFTS and SMFA) and have always reverted back to higher education institutions to continue my practice because there is guaranteed studio space.
I decided I was tired of moving my studio and I did not want to take out additional student loans, I wanted consistency in the space I could express myself. So I bought this old Church. It needs repair, but the bones are strong, and it is rather affordable when looking at the real estate market these days in Colorado.

Imagine a space that allowed you the freedom to work on your creative practice.
Imagine that this space offered workshops led by working artists and makers.
Imagine this space was affordable for you and your family.
Imagine this space opened windows to greater opportunities to connect with other creative voices...

Welcome to The Church Project Limited. A for-profit business in Monte Vista, CO that is the communities local Art Center.

I need help bringing this building back to life to offer citizens the opportunity for social justice and freedom of speech.
