Why We Like This Place

• It’s an 1860s building that’s had many lives, and has been reinvented as an art gallery and event center. The remnants of the original stone architecture juxtaposed with dramatic art exhibits create visual interest at every turn.

• The gallery, with its high ceilings, large open spaces and colorful modern art, offers photo ops galore. You and your photographer can turn photo memories into a YouTube sensation with a backdrop like this.

• The Forum Gallery offers a blank canvas to create your own masterpiece. Start with a sweeping space under a domed rotunda and add your own strokes to turn this venue into a hip, cool, romantic statement of your ideal wedding.
