Washington, D.C.’s Adams Morgan neighborhood has become home to a new multi-use art and event studio named The Cheshire.
It is a non-profit organization, office space, and event venue geared toward supporting D.C.’s creative community.
“We provide a space for D.C.-based creators, artists, and residents to learn, create, and convene,” The Cheshire’s website says, describing its mission as “to be an accessible creative environment with evolving experiential opportunities.”
With a space of more than 3,000 square feet, the place is at the service of the city’s creative-community. Artists, content creators or creative businesses have the chance to lease five different units at the studio.
Located at 2412 18th St NW, Suite R, Adams Morgan, D.C. 20009, the building was originally designed as a luxury car garage in 1906. Therefore, it is said to reflect the character of old times, which would be an inspiration for artists. It was bought by Scott and Rebecca Williams, who planned on turning it into an office.
Film producer Ian Fay, who previously ran a video production co-working space for six years, started refurbishing the old building last year.
