Space One Eleven is a visual arts nonprofit founded in Birmingham in 1986. Its mission is to provide professional opportunities for artists, create a forum for public understanding of contemporary art and offer arts education to area youth. SOE’s summer Front Porch Gatherings are designed to bring the community together. A longtime part of American history and identity, the act of porch sitting has been lost due in large part to the distractions of technology. SOE aims to resurrect the activity, which can build and sustain communities with live, face-to-face interaction.
This project is supported, in part, by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts; Alabama State Council on the Arts; the Board of Directors; friends of Space One Eleven; local foundations; private, corporate and individual donors; and the UAB Department of Art and Art History.
