Our Mission

Mayfair Art Studio’s purpose is an affordable unique place where amateur and professional creatives can thrive.

Mayfair Art Studios are dedicated to the thousands of textile associates whose skills kept the Mayfair textile plants operating for over 100 years.” 

Our Objectives

  • To establish a new cultural destination that creates a unique space for creative exchange and grassroots entrepreneurship that engages both amateur and professional artists in a holistic experience with daily participation programs that will be free or offered at a reduced rate.
  • To increase access to the arts and creative enterprises to an isolated, high minority and under-served community.
  • To improve the living environment in a blighted neighborhood by developing a dynamic arts center that provides daily cultural, economic and social activities that increase community vibrancy, civic engagement and economic prosperity.
  • To engage multi-generational artists with Hispanic/Latinx and other residents and increase sharing of cultural traditions.
  • To attract and retain creative talent within our community.
  • To respond to increasing demand for affordable artist studios and co-work studios.
