A different kind of makerspace

I ran across the American Steel Studios in Los Angeles in my travels.  It is a community-based makerspace devoted primarily to artists.  Yes, you could probably call it an 'art studio' but it is also a collective sharing space for tools and technology as well as ideas, so I think calling it a maker space is a reasonable fit.  Here is an example of the scale of some of the work by one of the resident artists, Karen Cusolito and a picture of their massive workspace.

Dozens of artists have personal spaces within the facility with access to shared tools a within a supportive community.  Definitely worth a visit!
