We love bringing people together! Let us help you host your holiday and company parties, product launches, awards shows, fundraisers, gallery shows, all-age music shows, community meetings… anything you can dream up! You have ideas. We have space.

“My space at ADX gives me a freedom to make whatever I want, whenever I want. And while it gives me a place to engage with the solitude of creating, it’s not in isolation–that there are other people engaged with their art and their creativity, in the spaces just past the walls of mine, gives a collective energy to fuel the work even further.”


“Everyday I feel the need for some ADX air. It’s genius and ingenuity like one million little ball bearings rolling around between your fingers. You can feel the progress in the air here.”
