SPACES – Saving and Preserving Arts and Cultural Environments

 

As the first non-profit public benefit organization created with a national — and later an international— focus on art environments and self-taught artistic activity, SPACES’s mission is to:

 

* IDENTIFY large-scale art environments and other publicly-accessible self-taught artistic activities;

* DOCUMENT these artworks through a wide range of visual and audio records;

* COLLECT publications and ancillary information about these works; and

* ADVOCATE for their preservation.
