Mission: To restore, revitalize, and rehabilitate the historic Hollins Market community, through urban art, agriculture, structural and economic development. It will be a collaborative effort, building a creative hub for community gathering and engagement to increase cultural tourism and entrepreneurial economic development while avoiding cultural displacement.

• Excerpt from the new website:

The project has many facets including public art, greenspacing, art education and festivals. As our strategic plan materializes we will post updates on our projects so check back often.
We would also like to use this space to highlight some of the wonderful artists in our area. Please take some time to view our local artists page... 
We are funded through grants, donations and fundraisers. Please check out our events page for upcoming fundraisers. If you are interested in donating to the Hollins Market Placemaking Committee, we have 501(c)(3) status and your donation will be tax deductible...

Fall 2014 Art Stroll (article from the new site)


Our 2014 Fall Art Stroll was a wonderful success with over 18 local artists show casing their work. The event was hosted in local business including: Zella’s Pizzeria, Mi Ranchito, CUPs Coffeehouse, New Beginnings Barber Shop, Black Cherry Puppet Theater, and the 60s and 70s club. We also had neighbors Robert Meyer and Mark Braun help to showcase our artists.
