ECA values its partnerships with other community-based venues and organizations in support of the local arts community.
A Platform for Community Engagement in a Historic Mill Building
The Mill Arts Project (MAP) Space is a collaboration between Easthampton City Arts and Eastworks, a 100+ year-old converted mill building with a long and culturally rich history in the community. MAP Space supports an emerging curatorial program in a publicly accessible, industrial setting. MAP Space is a dynamic and engaging platform for emerging and established artists to present a wide range of visual possibilities and a diversity of perspectives.
A Place for Creative Exchange
MAP Space is located on the main floor of Eastworks, in the historic Mill District of Easthampton, MA. Prospective curators and artist-curators are selected based on originality of concept, artistic content, the potential for public engagement, and individual qualifications. Collaborations and group projects are strongly encouraged.
Exhibitions at MAP Space
MAP Space is centrally located on the main floor of Eastworks. Approximately 650 square feet, the space can accommodate a wide variety of artistic mediums and conceptual considerations, including two-dimensional and three-dimensional work, performances, video, light and sound installations, and more. Exhibiting at MAP Space requires that selected artists hold gallery hour each week of the exhibition and also includes a monthly Art Walk event. To submit projects to be considered for an exhibition at MAP Space, please apply during our annual open call. Applications are typically open July through September in consideration of works for the following calendar year. Shows at MAP typically run for 30 days.
