Box Factory Art Center, St Joseph, MI
One of the perks of our gypsy-like existence is visiting interesting art spaces everywhere we go. A gem in St Joseph Michigan is the Box Factory Art Center. It’s a beautiful old factory building that was transformed into a great arts center with excellent exhibit space and decent sized artist studios. It’s not just a gallery/studio space, it’s also a performing arts center with a stage and a cafe.
The big windows are great for people to see artists at work, but for the artists it would be a little bit like working in a fish bowl. What a great way for people to experience the process of making art though. Also a great use of a building that would otherwise be a ‘white elephant” for the town. We’d love to have an art center like this in our town….hmmm…and there are a couple of buildings that would suit something like this just fine.
