This huge former warehouse in Southtown hosts a collection of working studios and galleries, as well as several shops, dining spots, artist studios, and apartments. A one-stop entertainment center, offering everything from gelato and pub fare to a hair salon and bike rentals, it’s anchored by the 11,000-square-foot artist-run Contemporary Art Center. The style of work varies from gallery to gallery—you’ll see everything from primitive-style folk art to feminist photography—but the level of professionalism is generally high. A number of galleries sell arty gift items such as jewelry, picture frames, and crafts.
