A great space, and a remarkable project. The collegiality of the artists ups everyone's game. And I admire this particular church for not interfering or blowing their own horn. They somehow were given this asset, which was a white elephant, and they have repurposed it to great advantage to the community.

It's hard to repurpose a big box. Look around the metro! Major cities are stuck with them and don't know what to do. Good for them.
