Where Santa Cruz Artists Call ‘Home’

The community was jointly developed by the City of Santa Cruz and Artspace Projects, Inc., a nationally known non-profit developer of affordable space for artists and arts organizations. In addition to the residential lofts, the community transformed five historic tannery buildings into studio space for Santa Cruz artists.

The Tannery Arts Campus showcases the rich diversity of artistic and cultural talent found throughout Santa Cruz County. Works of arts are on display throughout the live/work 8.3-acre campus.
