Welcome to WOAH!

We are We Open Art Houses (WOAH), an emerging arts-service organization reanimating empty spaces through site-specific visionary projects.

WOAH aims to transform vacant storefronts, underutilized real estate, and off-the-grid open spaces into temporary art venues–showcasing creativity and reorienting pedestrian activity in unexpected places.

For property owners and space holders, WOAH offers a new opportunity to market vacancies to potential tenants by showcasing available spaces as attractive art sites.  By donating temporary space to WOAH, we house the space with art and market the pop-up gallery as part of an ongoing PR campaign.  Because WOAH strives to increase foot traffic and attract pedestrians to off-the-grid locations, we work with you to set the guidelines and build a creative program featuring a team of artists best suited to match space parameters and each property trade area.

For artists and project makers, WOAH invites you to work with us!  We believe in art and artists of all media.  Our goal is to provide unique opportunities for innovative projects to be made, seen, and heard.  If you have interest in joining WOAH on future projects, please contact us for information on how to be involved.

Do you own a WOAH worthy space to showcase?  Are you an artist interested in collaborating on future WOAH projects?  Questions about our initiatives, who we are, or want more WOAH?

We want to hear from you!

WOAH welcomes your comments and invites all interest.  Write WOAH at: weopenarthouses@gmail.com
