SPACES / Phantom Galleries

Superior Public Art Creating Community Environments – SPACES was formed in early 2009. We are an active and engaged planning and working team of representatives from a broad section of the community including artists, cultural organizations, businesses, and city agencies.

By us and through our working relationships with other community partners, our goal is to develop short and long-term art-based projects. These will lead to neighborhood and business revitalization, which will in turn, showcase Superior as a vibrant cultural destination.

At this time, our two major initiatives are the Back Art Door Project which guides the community to alleys and back doors of businesses whose front entrances will have no access during Tower Avenue reconstruction 2013-2014, and Phantom Galleries Superior which brings all disciplines of the arts into our vacant storefronts. Both initiatives are equal partnerships with the Superior BID. Longer-term goals include ways to beautify all major highways coming into Superior, and expand upon the mural project started by the Douglas County Historical Society.
