SPACES was informally organized in 1959 and has operated as a formal nonprofit organization since 1978. After some 5 1/2 decades, it is now time for us to take a new step that will enable us to put our collections and resources to even greater use. We are thus truly excited to announce that SPACES has decided to partner with Kohler Foundation, Inc., and will transfer SPACES' archives and the operation of the website to the only foundation in the country dedicated to the preservation of art environments. KFI is committing extensive resources to the present and future of SPACES mission and archives, and we will look forward, through this anticipated partnership, to maintaining the resources to continue to support SPACES’ mission for generations to come.

Find out more about this exciting transition in the upcoming months. Please note that due to the move, SPACES is no longer able to welcome scholars and researchers to our Aptos offices. We will notify our supporters when the archival materials once again become accessible for study, but in the meantime, keep up with SPACES online!
