Our 30,000 square feet of event space is a mixture of turn-of-the century warehouse spaces, and the award-winning architecture of our galleries, atrium and theaters. We offer the best of both aesthetic worlds—a 'blank canvas' in our warehouse to create custom look from scratch, as well as beautiful and contemporary visual art exhibitions in our striking galleries.
