Two new arts organizations, a lit-up water fall, major public art installations, and annual festivals. All the result of two years of work, where Golob Art revitalized a tempered arts community in the 50,000 person city of Methuen in the Merrimack Valley of north-eastern Massachusetts.
City of Providence - Management of Percent for Public Art Program
Rhode Island’s capital established a $1.3 million fund for public art projects and needed an effective, equitable, and impactful manager. That’s why, in 2021, and again in 2023, the City of Providence chose to work with Golob Art to manage their first-ever Percent for Art program.
Town of Groveland - Lucile's Cottage at Veasey Memorial Park
What does it take to save a historic property and transform it into a financially sustainable, community oriented arts space, all while galvanizing a community’s arts ecosystem? Over three years of work, Golob Art consulted for the Town of Groveland to develop Lucile’s Cottage, a 3,000 SF historic cottage on the 48-acre Veasey Memorial Park into a sustainable community arts space. We hosted community potlucks, charettes, and focus groups to assess options and opportunities. All of this work resulted in a comprehensive, 50+ page, 7-year business plan for establishing a financially sustainable, community responsive arts center and artist studio.
