The McAllen Chamber of Commerce is now accepting applications for artists who are interested in becoming tenants of the McAllen Creative Incubator. With help from the city, the McAllen Chamber has created 20 low cost artist studios and office spaces for expanding artists and art organizations. The Cultural Arts Department houses artists of different art disciplines such as porcelain painting, choir lessons and a children’s Acting Studio, just to name a few. The studio space available is a 12 x 12 space and rents for $175.00 a month.
