Opening early 2018, the Carpenters Building will house both private and public spaces for artists to create, collaborate, and engage with each other and the public. Our facilities include a coffeeshop and cafe, lounge, event spaces to house 5 to 500 people, a performance venue, our recording studio, Golden Cat Studios, an artist incubator, and shared artist workspace.

We look for signs wherever we go: navigating the freeway, exploring a restaurant destination, searching for the bathroom. We seek out ‘signs of life,' we talk about ‘telltale signs,’ and excavate our past for missed signs — red flags. We are obsessed with signs and signifiers as a species, always on the hunt for the visible that signals that we are on the right track. We believe, intrinsically, in right tracks and wrong tracks, and any song, poem, or proverb that speaks of paths or tracks will tell you that the right way always leads you home.
