EL PASO, TX (KTSM) — A theatre, a recording studio, a kitchen, a gallery, a movie studio, a dance floor...these are just a few of the masks worn by local art community, The Glasbox in Central El Paso.
But the local creative community needs public support to stay afloat.
The Glasbox, a building housings dozens of artists and entrepreneurs in Central El Paso, is on the ropes in terms of keeping their location and renovating their facility. The building is in need of electrical and air conditioning improvements. A social media campaign aimed at saving the Glasbox at their Cotton and Texas location looks to raise donations to help keep the place.
"It's a resource sharing operation for creative artists and creative types of people," said Owner/CEO Chris Bevins. "I just built this skeleton. What people see when they come here is ll of the individual artists and groups that have their own personality."
All of these personalities include actors, painters, musicians, metalsmiths and countless other creators. In addition to accepting donations to renovate the building the Glasbox is offering memberships for access to artspace and office space.
