Next Event:

Matt McCormick Film Tour on Thursday, October 28, 8pm

The next event at the loft will be the internationally-known Portland experimental filmmaker Matt McMormick who will be showing a selection of his films starting at 8pm on Thursday. You may be familiar with his film The Subconscious Art of Graffiti Removal, which we screened at an earlier synthetic zero loft event here. We are located at 305 E. 140th Street, 4th Floor.

We're just 20 minutes from Union Square. Please tell your friends about it!

In addition to Matt's films, we are exhibiting the work of a few visual artists:
