A core tenet of the Motor House's mission is providing sustainable workspace for practicing artists. Our second floor studios range in size from our 150 square foot micros studios to our larger, 900 square foot studios, and provide working space in the heart of the Station North Arts & Entertainment District for more than 18 individual artists and collectives.
Motor House is built out to meets our tenants needs while encouraging collaboration.
Motor House is not only a space to house inspiring artists and organizations, but a space that inspires anyone who enters.
Located directly behind the Motor House, Graffiti Alley is made and re-made by graffiti artists on a near daily basis. For years, writers have contributed to this constantly changing outdoor space, and Graffiti Alley has served as a backdrop for photos and video shoots, as well as an informal event and meeting space for creatives of varying disciplines from across the city.
