Charles Adams Studio Project (CASP) is a non-profit arts organization located in Lubbock, TX on the high plains of West Texas. CASP was founded by gallerist Mr. Charles Adams with the support of a generous gift from Lubbock business owner and philanthropist Margaret Talkington, and received its 501(c)(3) status on June 10, 2011 with an effective date of October 29, 2009.
The mission of Charles Adams Studio Project (CASP) is to serve as a cornerstone in the Lubbock Arts District through developing and sustaining a working artists’ community that actively engages the public with the arts. CASP pursues this mission in large part through the acquisition and renovation of real property within the Lubbock Cultural Arts District.
CASP facilities are designed to provide artists with studio space, specialized equipment, and exhibition opportunities. CASP promotes an environment of creative exchange and community engagement through public workshops, demonstrations, lectures, tours, weekly studio classes, and First Friday Art Trail events, as well as through the CASP Artist-in-Residence Program, the Helen DeVitt Jones Print Studio Fellowship, and the CASP Arts Administration Fellowship.
