About the Artscape Distillery Studios

This multi-purpose property occupies two heritage structures and provides space for artists working in many disciplines including sculpture, woodworking, metalsmithing, opera, dance, painting, theatre, fashion, multi-disciplinary arts and more. This facility was one of the first to populate this historic industrial area, and the presence of the Artscape Distillery Studios tenants helped to spur the broader effort to regenerate what is now the Historic Distillery District.
