Art on 30th was the vision of Kate Ashton in 2013 and officially opened its doors in January 2015. Ashton wanted a venue that honored the artists she mentored, a space that would be inspiring not only to work in, but for all who visit.
An 8,000 square foot, 2 story art center made up of a community of artists who are courageous enough to take their art to market and do it successfully.
The building that is now Art on 30th once housed the Morse Security Company. We left the original mosaic logo in the lobby floor for the first 5 years we were open as an homage to the building’s history.
The original Samuel Morse was an artist made famous by his portrait of American President John Adams. He also invented the Morse Code. So the mosaic has an unexpected association with art.
