with over 7,800 sq. ft
the vision of one artist is a role model for others in the arts
ONE PERSON HERE, ONE PERSON THERE, A TEACHER, AN ART LOVER, A PARENT, A GROUP THAT JOINS TOGETHER IN COMMON PASSION, THAT IS HOW IT STARTS...THE RIPPLE GOES OUT, THE SEEDS ARE DROPPED!
I can tell you in every community all around the world, large or small this is how it begins with one person with dedication and passion who effects another or many. Their influence bathes others in their light of creativity and vision, and then like a planted seed it takes growth. Duncan McClellen's Studio warehouse is one successful example.

|Front deck has sculptures, exotic fruit trees and seating|

process of glass blowing

In future post we will look at other artists and communities that have transformed warehouses and depressed areas into art studio's, art centers, and art class areas that in turn build a more vibrant community.
