Housed in a repurposed warehouse just south of downtown Las Vegas, The Arts Factory is the center of the vibrant 18b Las Vegas Arts District. Founded in 1997 by Studio West Photography owner Wes Myles Isbutt, The Arts Factory is dedicated to promoting and nurturing up-and-coming artists. The building houses 23 tenants from a variety of fields, including photography, architecture, and jewelry. The space even has a yoga school and Bar+Bistro, a Mediterranean restaurant helmed by executive chef Beni Velasquez. Committed to community involvement, The Arts Factory participates in the district’s First Friday gallery events.
