Getting Artsy at HQApril 23, 2014 12:00 AM
We are excited to announce two arts partnerships at our new space! Read below for the official press release and stop by during the next First Friday art walk to see the exhibitions on display.
HQ Raleigh Partners with CAM Raleigh, Artspace
HQ Raleigh recently announced a continued partnership with CAM Raleigh, a premier contemporary art museum and urban community center, and a new relationship with Artspace, a visual art center and studio environment in downtown Raleigh since 1986.
The entrepreneurial workspace recently moved from Hillsborough Street to Downtown Raleigh’s Warehouse District. While on Hillsborough, HQ Raleigh developed a partnership with CAM Raleigh to showcase and support emerging contemporary artists in the area. Now that the two organizations are situated next door to one another, their partnership will grow to include the curation of a sculptural installation by Jonathan Brilliant, rotation of three art exhibitions throughout the year, and collaboration on events. These events will include food truck rodeos and First Friday art walks to raise awareness for the growing arts and entrepreneurship community in the Warehouse District.
This partnership will enable CAM Raleigh to reach beyond its walls to share innovative and engaging art with the community. It also creates a pathway for HQ Raleigh to foster arts and creativity within Raleigh’s entrepreneurial scene.
Additionally, HQ Raleigh recently partnered with Artspace, located a few blocks away in the Moore Square district. During the year, Artspace will utilize the HQ Raleigh co-working space as a satellite location for four rotating exhibitions by regional artists. Their first exhibition features abstract paintings by Durham-based artist Bonnie Melton.
Both organizations will collaborate to promote programming and resources that support creative entrepreneurs. Each of these partnerships will bring a groundswell of support, resources, and attention to the growing and vibrant arts community in Downtown Raleigh.
