This central downtown space is home to a diverse array of creative professionals. Through a variety of part-time and full-time membership options, and open-house events, Anthem Studios supports & promotes local artists & creatives. The design of this space is a blend of modern-industrial and turn-of-the-century, revealing original masonry, marble, tile, and mohogany. The antique transom windows and steel vaults throughout echo of another era, where this same space was also filled with vibrant and far-reaching enterprise and activity.
