The Greater Port Clinton Area Arts Council recently launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise the floors at The Arts Garage (TAG) and we need your help!
Over the last year and a half, TAG has become a vital piece of the Port Clinton and Ottawa County arts scene. With 23 resident artists calling TAG home, events daily and weekly for local artists, authors and organizations, TAG is poised to become a premiere arts hub for northwest Ohio. The GPCAAC Capital Campaign Committee has made it a goal to raise $160,000 to begin Phase 1 of extensive renovations to TAG, located in the city's old garage at 317 W. Perry Street in Port Clinton. Phase 1 of the revitalization of the 1930s-era yellow brick building includes raising the floor several inches for a safe, level floor as well as building three new ADA compliant restroom facilities and more that is needed to make this a world-class arts facility for Ottawa County.
The building could feature:
art studios for working artists,
concert/theatre area - inside and out,
a makers area,
a working chef’s kitchen,
sculpture garden, and
possibly a museum.
The project altogether is estimated to cost more than $1,000,000.
But we need help to start Phase 1.
