Artspan Onondaga Art Center
Dear Art Lover, A thriving art culture enriches our lives every day. Join me in making a commitment to amplify ArtSpan’s work by helping us open the ArtSpan Onondaga Art Center. The impact of our expanded programming will reverberate through the city and the region. I hope you will join our efforts by becoming part of our community of supporters and planting the seeds of our creative future. Curtis Wilhelm Chairman, ArtSpan Board of Directors With the lease for 45 Onondaga Avenue signed, we’ve officially completed Phase 1 of establishing our very own home in the historic Excelsior District! The groundwork has been laid and our contractors are ready to begin Phase 2: putting our restoration plans into action and bringing the ArtSpan Onondaga Art Center to life. The Art Center will magnify ArtSpan’s vision to serve our community more directly. Together we can transform this historic building into a powerful ecosystem with reverberations well into the future. Please join us in making this vision a reality by next summer. No contribution is too small in building a more resilient creative future. Become a part of our legacy! We have a limited number of naming rights available for art studios and community spaces. You can become a Founder by visiting the Onondaga Art Center page at At the core of the ArtSpan Onondaga Art Center is our desire to foster direct, person-to-person relationships, and have multiple voices heard.
