Unrestricted gifts to Space One Eleven underwrite general operating expenses and strengthen our capacity to mount provocative exhibitions, showcase emerging and under-represented artists, and provide transformative art experiences for children and youth in our nationally recognized art education programs.
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.
Program and Sponsorship opportunities
Sponsorship and underwriting opportunities are available at various levels. SOE will work with you to develop a plan that meets your objectives and budget. 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.
