Welcome to the Sculpture, Woodworking and 3D Walking Tour.

Here you’ll find three dimensional explorations in mixed media to sculpture in clay, plaster, glass and wood – you’ll find an array of objects from small to large. The fifth floor is home to our Sculpture and 3D Mini Gallery – located outside Studio 597 and the freight elevator.

Take the Tour.

The Studios cover five floors, but please note that the first floor is not accessible by the elevator – use the stairwells for first floor access. At this time the Lofts are not open to the public except for specific events. We encourage you to view the loft artist profiles and make a private appointment to see their work. Only artists who have a profile on our website are listed on the tour – but there are many more so go and explore!
