Public Space One Director John Engelbrecht releases video update

Posted by Drew Bulman | Mar 6, 2013 | Community/News

Public Space One (PS1) Director John Engelbrecht released a video Tuesday detailing current efforts to retain, or at least extend, PS1’s presence in the historic Jefferson Building. Located on the basement level, the space has served as a uniquely accessible venue for arts and entertainment in downtown Iowa City.

PS1’s lease came as the result of a donation on behalf of the University of Iowa, and is not expected to be renewed. (The recently-opened PS1-affiliated printmaking space, PSZ/Zenzic Press will not be affected). The venue is facing an exit date centered around July 1, though Engelbrecht says efforts are underway to extend PS1’s stay in the space beyond that date.

Watch the video below for details straight from the source.
