Fund a garage or building facade project.
The Building Facade program benefits the community in whole as it introduces arts to the residents, heightens the interest in the area as a positive and vibrant community, and provides design and building upgrades to local building structures. We lease a garage or small building from a local resident, cleaning it up, and install a sheet metal and wood facade. Inside is a cool art installation that is changed out 4 times yearly.
Here is a breakdown of estimated costs.
Sheet Metal & Wood Garage Facade $700.00
-Materials, labor, installation, and retrofit to garage structure
-Internal garage cleanup, and minor repair work.
Annual rent (12 months) $820.00
-ECP will rent a garage or building installation space for 12 months
Total Project (Startup + Annual Operation) $1,520 (DONATE)

Donate your garage or small building to be used as an art installation site
If you own a garage or small building, and you are willing to donate it for use as an art installation site and garage facade project, ECP would be happy to list you as a contributor to our projects, and thank you on social media channels if applicable. It’s a great way to help the community, and maybe even get your garage or building tidied up a bit, plus enjoy a cool outside facade of sheet metal and wood.
Donate your space. Email us here for more information and we will schedule a site visit.
