Here is something Old and New! Our newsletter ArtHaus Talks has been resurrected from the early days of ArtHaus. Check it out HERE!
ArtHaus was named in the spirit of the Bauhaus school of art, design and architecture. Bauhaus formed unified academies incorporating art colleges, colleges of arts and crafts and schools of architecture, thus promoting closer cooperation. Gropius, founder of the original school closed by Nazi authorities, advocated a co-operation between art, industry and commerce. Bauhaus served as a foundation for uniting artists and schools of thought elevating each to a new level of understanding through association. This unification extended to its teaching programs in which feeling and thinking, intuition and intellect, expression and construction belonged inextricably together. The ArtHaus Foundation furthers these ideals by uniting artists, teachers, students and patrons through its programs.
The Foundation provides lectures, workshops, demonstrations, exhibits, classes and community events. ArtHaus continues to improve and develop its program schedule.
While striving for new and innovative ways to educate students, the art department of Spruce Creek High School realized an important element was missing from students education. Art Students lacked a professional venue to display their work and complete the artistic experience.
The concept of a three walled addition to the school in 1994 blossomed into a free standing building in 1996 for all Volusia County students to utilize. The ArtHaus Foundation was incorporated at this time as a 501 (c) 3.
The building site was then moved to the Port Orange Municipal Center to increase accessibility throughout the community. In 1997, the ArtHaus launched its programming efforts with a school lecture series and community gallery talks. The Foundation built upon those programs; adding an art collection program, workshops and exhibiting work online. A master plan was also completed in 1998 incorporating classroom facilities and a theater on a six-acre site with the student gallery. The ArtHaus Complex will be the anchor point for an upscale office complex within the Municipal Center.
Community leaders and local businesses have been extremely supportive and enthusiastic. The Foundation is currently expanding its Board of Directors and discussing financing options with the City of Port Orange that will ensure the completion of phase 1 in the near future. Throughout the building process, ArtHaus will remain dedicated to enhancing the current art curriculum, providing arts education programs, and promoting cultural enrichment for the community.
