The same folks who brought Portland the Art Department, the fairly recently established (summer 2010) gallery and event space in the Central Eastside Industrial District, are now introducing an even bigger project. ADX is a membership-based collaborative workspace with tools and resources for professional creative thinkers and doers.
ADX's 10,000 sq. ft. facility offers metal and wood shops, co-working desks, a digital media station and vintage travel trailers that serve as artist studios. The space will also host classes, exhibitions and additional art- and design-based programming. Members pay hourly, daily or monthly fees for affordable access to ADX's resources and tools.ADX will host a "Creative Community Open House" on March 23rd from 6-8pm. This preview will give Portland's creative community members a chance to tour the facilities, learn about the resources and opportunities ADX has to offer, plus sign up for a special introductory membership. Ninkasi beer, Townshend's Dr. Kombucha and Lonesome's Pizza will be at hand.
ADX is located at 417 SE 11th Ave., between Oak and Stark.
