5280 Artist Coop was founded by Stephanie Hancock, Adrienne Martin-Fullwood and Kenya Fashaw. It was born out of the idea that it was time to create a financially sustainable platform designed to showcase and help develop local great talent including poets, actors, writers, fine artists and musicians. We believe we are stronger as a community than we are as a group of individual artists.
