Cheap rent draws a full spectrum of people trying to get by while creating whatever their heart desires. Some serious artists in there are worth collecting; all are worthy of respect for their flat-out decision to give it a go.

Nice variety of shops/studios most with the artists present. Good parking, easy to get to right off Central Ave. Personalized feel getting to meet the local artists in their own studios.

Go to their website and check out their open house dates. Great time to visit with local artists and purchase locally.

An entire building of artists studios, the NKB is great way to view local contemporary art, and talk with the artists themselves! The NKB is close to lots of great bars and restaurants, as well. Come during Art-A-Whirl, a major art crawl event put on...More

This was the first time that I had visited the Art-A-Whirl. This was, actually, an amazing experience, though I didn't enjoy everything--all of the art. Of course, the diversity of art and styles was impressive. The Northrup King building itself is quite interesting. It's an...More

I admit that I'm biased (I have a relative whose studio is in the building), but I really had a great time visiting all of the artists and seeing their work at the 2012 Art-A-Whirl. You have an opportunity to view the work of many,...More

The works are really outstanding and the artists are kind and gracious. Go on first Thursdays to get a feel for the entire place and go back to specific studios at your convenience (and the artists) for a more in-depth discussion.

This is a great place to visit on the first Thursday of each month, when they have an open house. Visit with artists and buy some local art -- or just treat it as a free night at a fantastic and diverse art gallery.

The building is a collection of rooms where local artists create and display and sell their works.

Some very good art in a loft setting. Generally studios are not open to the public, so check ahead.
