Setting expectations.

The Standard is a temporary project space set up in a residential 1.5 stall garage.


Creatives in our communities face barriers as a direct result of race, gender, sex, and sexual orientation. We support a new model of connecting untapped creatives with the community through introductions, meaningful exchanges, and accessible art-collecting.
