Other Building Info: 

This building was built in the late 1800's and was originally a barn to house the mules that pulled the trolly cars and wagons.  Many of the unique features can be attributed to this early usage such as a block and tackle lift at the rear to bring up the hay and chutes to drop it down to the mules below. 

Eventually, the building was included in the city limits in 1926 and recorded in the city register as a cabint shop. High-end cabinetry was produced here until the late 60's when a Junk-man bought the building and stored his stuff throughout. I bought the building in 1977 in which to live and work. Over $150,000 in upgrades have been made in order to create a safe and secure environment for my family and valuable art work.

In 1980 I began mounting shows for young artists graduating from the Milwaukee Art Institute and UWM. This continued until 1997 when my work took over more of my time and energy. I have continued representing artists online while keeping samples of their work in-house.

Photographers have used the darkroom downstairs and the gallery/shooting space upstairs throughout the early years and it would still be a good fit for such a professional. 

A modern dance troop rented the space for a season and put on a wonderful performance in the early 80's. A theater group has also performed in the space. Enough electric service has been brought in to handle the lighting requirements for these shows.

The entire upstairs is wired for sound with good speakers througout. Its a great art space for your guests to experience and personally inspiring to live and work in.
