Venue Status: Open
ArtEgg Studios is a multi-use commercial rental building in New Orleans. A former produce warehouse, ArtEgg had 50 studios for rent in the Broad Street Cultural Products District (MidCity area of New Orleans). Rental units are suitable for art studios; photography studios, workshops; nonprofit and small business offices; acting and music rehearsals; collections, set design/building and prop storage as well as classes and conferences.
Fully rented prior to Katrina, ArtEgg was devastated yet the grand old structure survived. New roofs, electrical, sprinkler systems and environmental design elements such as solar tracking skylights, solar heated hot water, bamboo and recycled glass flooring, eco-friendly roofs and energy efficient fixtures are key elements of rebuilt ArtEgg.
ArtEgg's dynamic community includes working artists, collectors, conservators, writers, musicians, fabric designers, set builders, nonprofits, acting instructors and several small businesses. All share a commitment to New Orleans and to culturally and environmentally sustainable development.
