The City Needs Art & Community More Than Ever!
… The Germantown ArtHaus is already becoming a creative hub at the gateway to Germantown. Live art & painters, energetic music and high energy has already become the norm at 6228 Germantown Avenue!
The ArtHaus, a nod to the early 20th Century German
Bauhaus design school & Germantown’s German roots, will provide local artists a place “that gets them” to consign their artwork; share it with a new market, and make a living from their creativity.
The new name is perfect… it is a house-shaped building, it will covered with art (inside and out)… it IS an art HOUSE (or Haus!)!!
Ever since funding for the arts decreased, it has been imperative that we make a way to bring the arts to underserved communities, and make high-quality art accessible to the masses. The stakes have never been higher!
The raised funds will be used to restore and renovate the 3-story 1900’s Victorian building on bustling Germantown Avenue in Philadelphia. The building needs work “from soup to nuts”, as they say. The funding to secure the purchase is confimed. Your support will make the restoration of this beautiful gem possible.

Here’s the VISION!
The first floor will host a Cafe complete with coffee & specialty drinks, smoothies, salads, sandwiches and soups.
… but that is where the “normal” ends! The ArtHaus Cafe will sell local artists’ artwork, paintings, apparel, jewelry, hand-crafted earthenware, etc. Come in for a smoothie and leave with a unique gift for a friend or co-worker (or dare, I say… yourself!).
The ArtHaus cafe will offer the community an opportunity to see art in action in our “Maker Space.” Our side yard will be used for outdoor seating, live music events and off-hours outdoor arts programming.
The second floor artist studios for lease & classroom space are designed for artists and entrepreneurs. Professional Development Workshops and the opportunity to consign their work in the cafe will be extended to our studio artists.
The third floor, an inspiring studio apartment with a rooftop deck extends the living space and offers downtown luxury right in the neighborhood!
On the lower level of the building, The ArtHaus offers a commercial or non-profit tenant over 775 sq. ft. of private space for administrative or community programming.
