Support SOE’s Mission

Unrestricted gifts to Space One Eleven are the organization’s life blood: they underwrite general operating expenses and strengthen our capacity to mount provocative exhibitions, present enlightening programs, showcase emerging and under-represented artists and provide transformative art experiences for teens.

For three-decades Space One Eleven has been a leader in innovative visual arts; presenting exhibitions addressing issues faced by Birmingham and the South and promoting Birmingham-based artists at every turn.

Your contribution is an investment in expanding our work as we continue to move Birmingham to the forefront of the contemporary art world.

General Support
Contributions to the annual fund provide unrestricted operating support, helping to make possible Space One Eleven’s nationally recognized art education programs and highly respected visual art exhibitions.
Corporate Sponsorship and Exhibition Sponsorship
Exhibition sponsorship at Space One Eleven offers significant philanthropic and marketing opportunities. Special exhibitions at the SOE are among the most respected, publicized, and popular in the Southeast, and sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are available at various levels.

Space One Eleven is delighted to partner with individuals, foundations, corporations, and government agencies to present its exciting exhibitions to art aficionados as well as those just discovering the nuances of contemporary visual art.
