About Us

We are dedicated to giving both new art businesses and existing art business the support needed to establish and sustain themselves in our local economy. Our primary objective is to support the growth of art culture in our community in a way that is sustainable. ABI SPI (pronounced “abbey”, SPI) sets out to “incubate” artists who have the desire to own and operate their own art-related business on South Padre Island. Five art business entrepreneurs will be chosen to enter the Art Business Incubator Program every year, with hopes of each artist will be able to develop and implement a financially sustainable business model based on their creative work. The ABI SPI will also support existing art businesses in the area and market art as an attraction on an Island-wide basis through an annual calendar of art events.
