A unique artistic venture is soon to open in the Scholarship City.

Supporters of the arts in Fall River will hold a ribbon-cutting and grand opening at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday for The Ignition Space at 341 South Main Street, an event that organizers say “signifies the beginning of a new chapter in creative expression and cultural growth for the Fall River arts community.”

The Fall River Arts & Culture Coalition and One SouthCoast Chamber are rallying around the new 700 square foot space that will serve as a no-cost venue for exhibitions, learning, and arts programming.

“This space embodies our unwavering commitment to supporting local artists and creatives, serving as a beacon of inspiration and collaboration for years to come,” said Ashley Occhino, Executive Director of FRACC. “We extend our heartfelt gratitude to our program partners, Bristol Community College and site owner John Varao, and our funder, the TDI Creative Catalyst Grant Program, administered by MassDevelopment and funded by the Barr Foundation, for their instrumental support in bringing this creative venture to life.”

Following the ribbon-cutting ceremony, the Ignition Space will open to the public with its first exhibition, “Still Playing with My Crayons” by Jim Charette.
