The much talked about creative community at 1600 Meeting will be hosting a grand opening of sorts this Saturday at 10 am. "Awakening" will be a free art and performance event to introduce the Holy City to the businesses within the collaborative space.
The building will eventually be an office space, a home to art and design studios, a community resource center, and much more. It has been closed for decades, so artists of all types were given two full days to transform the space before doors open this weekend.
Here's a list of participants who worked on the space and/or will be in attendance:
Margaret Crane, The Art Bus Project
Laura Gaffke + Tina Hirsig
Kevan Hoertdoerfer + Vassiliki Falkehag
John Merritt, Traditional Small Craft Association
Alex + Sara Radin, Melanie Spinks, Beverly Currin, Bethany Jeanicke
