MaKen Studios
Short for “Made in Kensington” and comprised of nearly 300,000 square feet, MaKen Studios are two repurposed, industrial buildings in North Philadelphia that foster the development and sustainability of successful professional craftspeople, entrepreneurs, small businesses, and manufacturers.

Bahdeebahdu specializes in mixing contemporary art and design with a philosophy rooted in beauty, pleasure, and humor. Mixed-media artist Warren Muller and designer RJ Thornburg have created a magical environment for viewing and collecting handmade works.

Crane Arts Building
Crane Arts has four floors of galleries and artist studios with The Old School across the street, which is home to Pig Iron Theatre and a bouquet of artist studios converted from former classrooms. InLiquid, Icebox Project Space, and other galleries are located throughout the first floor.
