ARTIST COOP / CREATIVE STUDIOS 1330 GLADYS AVENUE, LONG BEACH, CA 90804
Centered in Long Beach's Design District, near Anaheim and Redondo Avenue, this 5,000 square foot Artist Co-op brings together creatives from and within different medium. The goal was to take a large, open warehouse and convert it into individual artist studios, one that would give a group of artists a way to productively work in a shared creative environment. This allows artists to get to know each other, their work, share resources and collectively put on shows and exhibits within the shared gallery space.
There are currently 9 individual artist studios ranging in size from 250 square feet up to 550 square feet each. Outside of each private studio, the artist is able to make use of shared amenities such as full kitchen, full bathroom with shower, deep sink, large front and side roll-up doors and of course the 1,000+ square foot communal gallery space.
