Micro Art Space was founded and directed in Cleveland, Ohio by artist Michelle Murphy. Although no longer a physical space in Cleveland, Micro Art Space remains online as an archive until Murphy completes graduate school at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and decides how to use this project/concept to serve an art community online or in her new residence in Chicago.

Micro Art Space was previously OPEN TO THE PUBLIC with Exhibition Receptions.

Every 3rd Friday of the Month from 5pm-9pm or by appointment.

Solo exhibitions feature the work of the current Artist-in-Residence.

Artists (National, Local, and International) are chosen through the residency application that is available online here.

Short-Term Public events, including performative works, critiques, reading clubs, workshops also occur at Micro Art Space in-between visiting artists.
