Indoor Space: our Main Gallery

The Gallery is a refinished space that once held heavy electrical machinery as the City’s Electrical Operations Center.  Stripes on the floor lay out spacing for these long-gone behemoths, lending historic layers of ambience.  Acoustics are great for music or conversation —the covered insulation overhead absorbs soundwaves. Exposed rafter rails allow for hanging decorative accents. Artist Studios surround the gallery. The entry lobby provides a colorful gathering space.

Outdoor Spaces: Market, and Green

The large, outdoor sheltered ‘Market’ space is great for a variety of uses including sketch theatre, festival or market events, music and dancing. Its structural layers show the transformation of this campus from a rough industrial complex serving a former mill town, to a vibrant arts and cultural center. The interior height of this shelter with lighting and electricity, is roughly 20’. Width and depth are roughly 50’. It contains bird-repelling netting to keep the new cement floor reasonably clean.

The outdoor ‘Green,’ a gently-sloping lawn, is bordered by our facilities on one side and trees, a creek and greenway trail on the other (leading to Academy Recreation Center just two blocks away). The Green makes a lovely setting for weddings or formal celebrations, as well as informal festivals or recreational events. Its subsurface gravel beds near the parking lot are sturdy enough to support food trucks or other equipment. Surrounding our campus is a quiet neighborhood loaded with history.
