What We Do

Citylight Arts Project exists to make more room for the arts in Benson by empowering the next generation of creatives and art patrons in a welcoming, inclusive space to learn and create.

With new artists and artisans flocking to the neighborhood, space is in demand. There is currently a lack of affordable studio space for creatives and start-ups. Additionally, many people in the area lack resources and a support network necessary to get off the ground. Therefore, we have set out to resurrect an old 4,300 square foot building on 56th and Northwest Radial Highway to help keep the Benson renaissance alive and well!

Interesting Info

Citylight Arts Project is the largest art space in the Benson neighborhood.
We provide space for visual and performing arts during the monthly Benson First Friday art walk.
Each year we host a student art show, a New American Artist Festival show, and much more!
