Overview: 

Grant Street Studios epitomizes the idea of the Phoenix rising from the ashes. Renovating a former cotton factory in downtown Phoenix, ASU School of Art has created a community for its graduate studio artists, galleries for them to showcase work among Phoenix artists, and workspaces for them to experiment and flourish.

Located in the Warehouse District in downtown Phoenix, Grant Street Studios has everything that the graduate student can hope for. It houses over 60 studios for all of the School of Art MFA candidates in one location. As well as individual studio spaces, students at Grant Street have separate sculpture, wood, ceramics and photography facilities on hand for whenever inspiration strikes. Seminar areas are used for the School of Art’s Visiting Artist and Scholar Lecture Series presentations, where student artists learn from and connect with nationally known visiting artists.

The expansive structure also showcases student artwork and outside artists in two galleries which are a part of the downtown Phoenix First and Third Fridays opening schedules. Step Gallery exhibits MFA thesis shows as well as exhibitions curated by students or ASU faculty. Northlight Gallery exhibits photographic works by both students and outside photographers through the strong network that curator Liz Allen has nurtured.

Grant Street Studios is a proud member of the downtown Phoenix Warehouse District.
