The Space

MICHAEL KEARNS’ SPACE

is essentially a big empty box.
An artist’s  playground of 700 sq ft.
Or think of it as a blank page.
An empty canvas, waiting for the power of creativity
to imbue it with light and texture,
sound and fury.
Merging grit with glam, the Space
reflects an artistic sensibility
that defines  Silverlake.
High ceilings. Cement floor splashed in vibrant colors..
Groovy. Inviting. Magical.

Classes in Acting, Solo Performance & More
Rentals (daily or hourly) but no bands, please.
