Hiawatha held an urban art fair on March 8 to commemorate the organization for completing its first year of operation. To celebrate, Hiawatha Lofts invited the public and local community to come experience a full day of art, dance and independent local businesses.
The Hiawatha Lofts consists of 61 one- and two-bedroom rental units of affordable live/work studios, plus six commercial storefronts for artist-related businesses. It is located in the Jackson Place Neighborhood and is made possible through ARTSPACE, a national nonprofit organization dedicated to creating, fostering, and preserving affordable space for artists and arts organizations. ♦
