Help Jax Art Studio Artists find a new location!

On Tuesday May 16th, nineteen local artists renting studio spaces at 800 W. Monroe Street were given their 30 Day Notice to Vacate. This came with no warning or at no fault of the artists themselves. We have until June 16th to find new studio spaces to continue working. Many of us depend on our studio spaces to make a living. So we’re turning to our community for help. We’re trying to raise $25,000 for a deposit and expenses towards relocation.

With the rising costs of renting retail and industrial spaces across the city, local small artists and our creative businesses struggle to compete with out of town hedge funds and large conglomerates. A strong deposit would help us secure a long term space. This would allow us to continue renting affordable studio spaces for working class Duval artists.

If the $25,000 goal isn’t met, or property unable to be secured at this time, any raised money will be divided equally among the Jax Art Studio artists to help them with the costs of this unexpected move. Thank you in advance for all of your love, time, and support!
