Pueblo is one step closer to getting a community art building, one that could include a theater and artist studios.
Artspace, a nonprofit real estate development company based in Minnesota, visited Pueblo this February to see if the town was a feasible option for a "potential mixed-use arts facility project." Turns out, Pueblo is a great candidate — the team even selected a few locations that could be renovated — and now other studies will be conducted to establish what the space could include. ArtsMarket, a Montana consulting firm, will perform the analysis, likely taking four to six months to complete.
The preliminary report done by Artspace was prepared for the Pueblo Performing Arts Guild, and was financed by a grant from the National Endowment for the Arts and matching funds from Urban Renewal Authority of Pueblo and Legacy Bank. Which is all to say, Pueblo knows what's up.
