  • This South Main warehouse will be converted into living/working space for artists.

The old United Warehouse building at 138 S. Paul in the South Main Arts District will soon house local artists, thanks to a collaboration between Minneapolis-based ArtSpace and the city of Memphis.

ArtSpace plans to convert the warehouse into 70 units of affordable living/working space for local artists, but they're open to ideas from the artists who may actually apply to live there. ArtSpace is hosting a public meeting tonight at the MCA Nesin Graduate Center on South Main from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m., and they're looking for input on what potential residents and arts supporters would like to see inside the apartments and what they'd like to have as shared space, such as performance and exhibition spaces, offices, or studios.

Construction for the project is expected to begin in 2014. For more information on ArtSpace's plans for Memphis, check out Hannah Sayle's Q&A with ArtSpace's vice-president of consulting and resource development Wendy Holmes.
