Supporting Artists as Entrepreneurs

Beginning August 2014, cove will enhance its productive spaces by inviting local artists to display their work. cove, a network of neighborhood productive spaces with a community defining how to be productive together, opened in 2013 with their Dupont Circle location.

Since opening, cove has added locations in popular D.C. neighborhoods, such as 14th St and Capitol Hill, to facilitate and support individuals and small teams in being productive. As such, their space should reflect the neighborhoods in which they are located. Through working with ArtSee, cove will have unique spaces that bring neighborhood residents and businesses and art communities together.

Members of the cove community come from different backgrounds and work environments. Sometimes, when trying to work at the kitchen table, getting lost in a row of cubicles, or fighting to find an outlet in the coffee shop, being productive is impossible. cove was created with a simple objective: building places you want to be. They’ve got all the basics covered—fast Wi-Fi, color printers, spiffy conference rooms, and now, local art. Coordinated by ArtSee, cove will host an artist in each community productive space based on the artist living in, working in or creating art about the surrounding neighborhood, starting with Capitol Hill.

ArtSee will work to bring local art and artists into each space with a six-month rotation of the work at each location. With the recent rise of non-traditional gallery spaces, cove will become the first space of its kind to welcome artists into their community. Each artist will not only have their work displayed but will be introduced to the cove community through a series of talks and workshops, coordinated by ArtSee. The 2014 calendar will kick-off with the Capitol Hill and 14th St locations and will continue through the fall with cove’s other locations.
