The Invisible Dog Art Center opened in October, 2009, a raw space in a vast converted factory building with a charmed history and an open-ended mission: to create, from the ground up, a new kind of interdisciplinary arts center. Over the last two years, over 50,000 people have attended our events: visual art exhibits; dance, theater, and music performances; film screenings; literary arts and poetry readings; lectures; community events; and more.
It’s the Smilebooth, a cultural phenomenon fueled by hybrid solutions and boundless connectivity that’s changing the way we live, work and play.
We’re in for a special treat this month!
