FINALLY, ARTSPACE IS COMING Six years in the making, Artspace will finally hold a ground-breaking ceremony later this month. Construction on the long-awaited project, which will construct a building containing 34 live/work units for artists, will begin in October. It's been a long process for the $9 million project, which has secured funding from a wide variety of sources, including the city of Minot. The new building will sit at the corner of Main Street and Central Avenue, where the former Leland Parker Hotel once stood. Besides the live/work spaces, the four-story building will house a community room and commercial space such as frame shops and galleries. We're happy the project is finally to the construction stage. Artspace will be an outstanding addition to the downtown Minot landscape.
