Located in downtown Albuquerque, OFFCenter Community Arts Project is a non-profit arts organization that believes art-making is central to community building. Our free-of-charge Open Studio is a safe place for everyone to make art.

New! You can now support the Little Houses Program directly. We’re partnering with others such as Heading Home Albuquerque and the Tiny Homes Village to provide Little Houses as housewarming gifts to their  clients. We’ll also sell houses to support our other programs. Donate here 

If you’re an artist (or just want to have fun) and want to contribute a decorated house, email info@offcenterarts.org
