As the creative community becomes more important to Kenosha’s economic and cultural development, artists and creatives require a place of their own to gather and exchange ideas.

The Kenosha Creative Space is that place.

Kenosha Creative Space offers programming that entertains, inspires, and informs. Its facility is to be used as a combined community center, co-working space and business accelerator for creatives. A nonprofit organization established in February 2016, Kenosha Creative Space is committed to creating economic opportunities for local artists, musicians, creatives, entrepreneurs and their local partner organizations. The partner organizations and individual supporters share the goal of using their collective resources for the mutual benefit of the Kenosha Creative Space, the creative community and the community at large.

Programs and events (including on-site and off-site ones) include:

  • Live music events
  • Art exhibits
  • Discussions and presentations
  • Pop-up arts events at the Simmons Island Beach Party, alleyways in Downtown Kenosha, and other locations
  • Kenosha Mural Project
  • Emerging New Music Series
  • BeExposed! to the Arts
  • And more!

The Kenosha Creative Space gallery at 624-57th Street is available for meetings, conferences, workshops or private events.

The Kenosha Creative Space, Inc. is a team project with participation from the City of Kenosha, by way of a $228,000 Community Development Block Grant, the Kenosha Art Association as grantee, ExposeKenosha as project manager and the Kenosha Community Foundation as fiscal sponsor and lead fundraising partner.


At Kenosha Creative Space, you’ll find Blue House Books. After three years of serving Kenosha as a pop-up and micro bookstore, Blue House Books has expanded into a fully stocked, full-service independent bookstore. Find details here.
