Piece by Piece Artisans Prepare for Move to Star Building Downtown

Our artists have been busy preparing donated materials and organizing supplies for our impending move into a permanent space downtown.


Our new space is located on the bottom floor of Skid Row Housing Trust's newest supportive housing building, the Star Apartments, at the corner of 6th and Maple streets.This location will host workshops and projects as well as house our materials, supplies and artwork.


We've already started working in the Star art room and a storage area, planning our move. We are also working with the Star Residents on creating mosaic spheres for their rooftop garden, and holding beginning workshops.
