More details are starting to emerge about the next project from M5Arts, the group behind the insanely popular Art Hotel exhibit that took place in downtown Sacramento in early 2016. Come February 2017, M5’s “ArtStreet” exhibition will take over an entire warehouse building and the exterior space surrounding it located at 300 First Ave. The building is located right next to The Mill at Broadway, a 32-acre industrial park that’s currently being redeveloped into an urban residential community. Much like Art Hotel, ArtStreet will be a temporary, multidisciplinary exhibit that will run from Feb. 3–25 and will be free for the public to attend. M5 recently closed the first round of their call to artists, receiving well over 300 submissions from local artists as well as many from around the world. The project is estimated to cost upwards of $150,000, which the group hopes to raise from donations by local art enthusiasts, both personal and institutional. Visit Kickstarter.com and search for “ArtStreet” to donate and in return you’ll get rad stuff like shirts, hoodies, a thank you on their website, stickers, front-of-the-line passes and copies of the Art Hotel coffee table book, which will be released soon.
