A new and first of its kind creative space, AT YOLK, has been opened in the Hyattsville district, a short distance from downtown D.C. The 10,000-square-foot space is designed for artists and designers to experiment and make creative works.
The space with 25-foot ceilings has been designed by Washington-based entrepreneur Pum Lefebure who is famous for making campaigns for Smithsonian, the Academy Awards, among other big names.
“We hope the new space inspires, teaches, mentors and connects creative minds to dream bigger and create anything they dare to imagine,” said Lefebure.
Lefebure is hoping that the new space can help artists and designers to invent and realize their vision. He also wants the space to put D.C. on the national design map. “AT YOLK’s mission is to support and nurture the creative community in Washington, D.C. The space is a creative think tank, an intellectual forum, and an incubator for emerging talent,” he said.
Many creative workshops, shows, painting classes and exhibitions are planned at the space. Aspiring designers and artists can also get to know and learn from senior designers at work in the new space.
