Mayor Kimberley Driscoll and the Public Art Commission is looking for creative entrepreneurs to participate in the eleventh season of Artists’ Row, a City of Salem Arts Space Initiative. Artists’ Row is located in historic downtown Salem at 24 New Derby Street, across from Old Town Hall and Derby Square. This area at the heart of the City was originally built as a market place and continues to this day to be an important public plaza and pedestrian way.
Artists’ Row is a seasonal program (May 21-November 2, 2015) that provides rent-free space for artisans interested in building their audience through daily engagement with residents and visitors to Salem. In 2015, the City is expanding the variety of activities considered for Artists’ Row spaces to include all types of uniquely produced or crafted products that have appeal to a wide audience. Possible categories are handcrafted products, artwork and artisanal food products. The City is particularly interested in activities that will contribute to a lively activated passage that serves as an entryway to one of the central public spaces in downtown Salem.
