Wendy Holmes and Roy Close from Artspace, shed more light on how they develop live/work affordable housing for artists. If the community is willing to do a market survey to determine how many units will be feasible for Crookston, they could pursue developing the right sized project here. What is unique about their projects is that they own and operate them as well as develop, construct, and rent up the project. With laughter and fun they explained their challenges and success stories. One thing is for sure, we need to plan a trip to Fergus Falls to visit the Kaddatz Artist Lofts. Or if you are traveling to Brainerd, Duluth, or the Twin Cities this summer be sure to check out their website, www.artspace.org, to visit one or more of their developments. Watch for more posts on this "amazing" visit to Crookston that was full of fun, serious moments, sparkle and vision.
