651 Arts

Brooklyn, NY, US

Visible from the café, 651 Arts graphics will lead to an elevator that takes patrons to their black box theater, gallery, and classroom on the 4th floor. 651 Arts’ first permanent home will also include rehearsal studios, offices, and meeting spaces to support their programming.

“I applaud the City and Two Trees for this partnership at 300 Ashland which has brought new open space to the neighborhood, and permanent space for key cultural organizations at the heart of the Brooklyn Cultural District,” said Regina Myer, President of the Downtown Brooklyn Partnership. “Continuing a 40-year joint effort by the City and local arts organizations to invest in the rich history and vibrancy of Brooklyn’s arts scene, this project further bolsters Brooklyn’s status as the cultural heart in one of the most diverse places in the world.”
