There’s this place…

It’s an old place, and it’s a city place

and it’s a magical, alive, spirited place.

People come to this place,

from far and near,

and are changed.

And change the place.

It grows lighter,
as if the turret so high reaching, reaches even higher,
bold and brilliant.

This place comes alive;
and brings to life
Grace, all of it.

This place,
this old place, this city place,
this brilliant, bright, art, grace place,
is here.

Inside and out,

studios, rooms, gathering spaces
it is all here-
for you.
See what it takes to make your unique magic,
with your unique group,
shine too~
