Kenosha Creative Space is a non-profit organization and arts venue committed to connecting, inspiring, and showcasing local artists, musicians, creatives, and entrepreneurs. For the past six years, Creative Director Francisco Loyola and his team have been doing just that. “We collaborate with all the educational institutions, independent artists, art and community organizations,” Loyola said, “We believe that as the creative community becomes more important to Kenosha’s economic and cultural development, artists and creatives require a place of their own to gather and exchange ideas. Kenosha Creative Space is that place.” In 2018, they opened up their permanent location on 57th Street in Kenosha. The Creative Space is proud to be the leading organizer of the Rock Circus as they continue to inspire their community, everyday.
