One of the key objectives of Port Moody’s Public Art Policy is to showcase and support local artists. With this objective in mind, the City owns and operates a collection of artist studios at 2709 Esplanade that are rented to emerging and professional artists. Through the rental of these studios the City encourages artists to base their practices in Port Moody and connects the artists to a larger creative network.
There are eleven private studios at 2709 Esplanade, ranging in size from 125 to 990 square feet. Each studio is unique and has special features – some have skylights, or windows, others have private bathrooms. Studio rental rates are based on square footage, unique features, and shared amenities. Common areas, such as kitchen, bathrooms and gallery space are shared between artists.
If you would like more information about the studios, please contact our Public Art Coordinator at 604.469.4605.
