Ypsilanti, Michigan-based VGKids will sponsor an effort to connect artists and musicians with available studio space. The project, Spur Studios, will center on rehabilitating long-vacant office space in Ypsilanti into private studios. Artists and musicians are often considered a cultural asset, attracting young talent and fresh businesses.
James Marks, Founder and Creative Director of VGKids, states “This is a simple grass roots effort and a sign of understanding from Ypsilanti stakeholders that the arts are going to play an integral role in our future. Washtenaw County has long needed a space where musicians can be loud without disrupting the neighborhood, and artists can get a little paint on the floor without losing the security deposit on an apartment.”
Private studios are available in a variety of sizes with a one year lease. Roughly 75% of the studios have natural light, and the entire facility will have 24 hour access and off street parking. Living in the building is expressly forbidden.
A general meeting for potential tenants will be held Sunday July 19th, 2pm at Corner Brewery. Following a presentation, a tour of available spaces will take place at 800 Lowell Street, Ypsilanti, MI 48197.
