Our mission is to uplift and empower our community by supporting
emerging artists’ careers from the studio-level to the museum-level,
both locally and internationally.
The Clementina Arts Foundation’s objective is to fund three crucial programs with three distinct objectives:
Clementina was an off-shoot of the Alvarez Gallery, which began Sprouting Spaces in 2011 after seeing so many commercial vacancies in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. By negotiating with conscious landlords, Sprouting Spaces was born, and years later, Clementina Arts Foundation.
