The Orange County Arts Commission (OCAC), in collaboration with The Gold Family and its partner, Hedgehog Holdings, seeks to activate Hillsborough’s historic Eno River Mill through the arts, providing a critical need for the creative community of Orange County, as well as generating economic impact for the surrounding area. This undertaking will take place in phases, beginning with move-in-ready studio spaces, and eventually providing performing arts space, arts-retail space, and a variety of maker spaces.
PHASE ONE: ART MILL STUDIOS
The Art Mill Studios are former offices located in a move-in ready, 2,970 square foot, former office space. It features private and communal studio space for up to 13 artists at affordable prices. The beautifully restored exposed brick and hardwood hallway just outside of the space will allow for exhibit space for tenants.
- TOURS: If you are an interested artist and were not able to attend one of the tours, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a time to see the space.
- APPLICATION: The application period is open through December 15 with accepted applicants being notified shortly thereafter. Priority will be given to residents of Orange County and artists who do not currently have a home studio. Click here to apply.
- LEASE: Accepted artists will be required to sign a one-year lease with the Orange County Arts Commission and agree to a background check.
- MOVE-IN: Spaces will be available for move-in following the completion of lease contract. Our target move-in period is the first half of January.
