Future Ink Graphics creates a makerspace for graphic artists in Cleveland's Pivot Center
A makerspace for graphic artists recently opened in the Pivot Center for Art, Dance and Expression in Cleveland's Clark-Fulton neighborhood.
Future Ink Graphics, also known as FIG, will have art classes and lectures, a silkscreen print shop and gallery exhibitions.
"I wanted to create a space where I could help artists really grow and find different ways to use their skills to create income for themselves," said Stephanie Kluk, founder and executive director of FIG.
At the Pivot Center, FIG resides among several other arts organizations, including the Cleveland Museum of Art's Community Art Center, Inlet Dance and LatinUs Theater Company.
