The brochure lists each venue’s physical address, phone number, website address and hours of operation. It also features a map showing each venue’s location.
The project has been coordinated by Mobile Arts Council, which hosts a monthly meeting of representatives of downtown art spaces, open to anyone who would like to be involved. Dee Cariglino (dee c. design) is responsible for the look and layout of the publication, and the printing was provided in part by Optera Creative.
