Until now, the answer to “Where are you located?” was as varied as our projects. Our caravan will soon be parked in Old Town Newhall. We are so excited to move into the building next to CASI Ceramics in a courtyard of businesses shared with OutWest Western Boutique. Ample parking in lot next door, Canyon Theater Guild across the street, and beautiful mature TREE growing right outside our door. Perfect.
Some of our ongoing, established events will continue in their current locations, but we are looking forward to an expanded list of art opportunities in our new home.
Gratitude goes out to the recent and past donors who are making this dream a reality.
