The gallery was originally part of “Automobile Row” at the turn of the 20th century. It first functioned as a brake shop and maintains much of its historic architecture and signage. In 1968, riots following the assassination of Martin Luther King, Jr. caused citywide destruction. The loft represents the city’s attempt to rebuild and revitalize after this time.
