Art Moves You, Now it's Time for You to Move Art

ArtFusion 19464's new home will be in the former Fecera's furniture warehouse on Beech Street.

Everyone knows, moving always marks the beginning of a new chapter in life.

But actually moving? that just plain sucks and the only thing that makes it any better is when friends lend a hand.
Judy Memberg, Executive Director of Genesis Housing,
gave The Mercury a tour of the apartments in April.

And that's what ArtFusion 19464 needs this coming weekend.

After years of planning and months of preparation, the non-profit community art center is ready to move to its new home.

Now located in the 200 block of High Street, ArtFusion 19464 will move into space in the recently renovated building at the corner of Beech and North Evans streets that was most recently home to the Fecera's Furniture warehouse, but had stood empty for about a decade.

As most of you no doubt read in the April 16 edition of The Mercury, work on the 43 apartments aimed at artists is complete and rental applications have been open since last month.

Work is just about finished on the new art center interior.
The other half of the $13 million project is a new home for ArtFusion19464, to offer a place for those artist tenants to work and collaborate.

And the time for them to move in has come.

"We need volunteers who can carry boxes and go up and down stairs. Or if you have a truck that can carry lots of things, we can use your help too! We have two scheduled times for next weekend, but if you can help out for an hour or two outside of those times, or during the week, that would be amazing as well," the center wrote in a bulk email to supporters.
"We will be making our big push on Saturday, June 17 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Sunday from 1 to 4 p.m."
