SPACES, based in San Jose, California, is a nonprofit public benefit organization created with an international focus on the study, documentation, and preservation of art environments and self-taught artistic activity. SPACES began in 1978 for the purposes of identifying, documenting, and advocating for the preservation of large-scale art environments.

We were excited to develop a tool that will help SPACES bring the collection online. The main purpose of the site was to move the collection from folders and storage boxes, to an online database that would allow visitors to contribute content and even help identify new environments.
