Tannery Arts Center

The Tannery Arts Center is a first-in-the-nation arts community that provides a sustainable, accessible and vibrant home for the arts in Santa Cruz County. Located at 1030-1070 River Street in Santa Cruz, the Tannery is home to 100 affordable live/work artist lofts, 20+ artist studios, Tannery World Dance and Cultural Center, Radius Gallery, Jewel Theatre, Bistro 112 and the Arts Council’s North County offices.

In 2016 the Arts Council worked with stakeholders to co-create a Tannery Community Plan, and in 2017 the Arts Council took on a leadership role on campus, providing communications, programming, and community-building support, to help the Tannery realize its vision as a center for artists, arts, and creativity. We welcome your feedback and involvement as we implement the Tannery Community Plan. Feel free to get in touch at tannery@artscouncilsc.org.
