…or an answer to the Question: “Hey,
what’s ART LAB 123?”
Lab is an experiment. It asks the question, "Is it possible to
evolve the traditionally-defined Artist's Studio into a
community Arts Hub?"
Our experiment has been underway since 2010. It continues to
experientially gauge the extent to which an Artist's Studio can:
1) expand its vision to benefit multiple working artists; 2)
serve art patrons; 3) enhance the quality of life of its
residential and commercial neighbors.
The Art Lab promotes community building and purposeful living.
It provides a meeting place and a work space for artists, art
collectors and others to exchange ideas that promote a more
balanced and sustainable life for persons and communities.
Can the tradition Art Studio's scope be enlarged in this
socially significant manner. We believe so! The positive
evidence to support our hypothesis is growing as we move further
in our great experiment.
