At Minnesota Street Project in Dogpatch, a trio of warehouses are being transformed into a gallery hub, a series of artist studios, and a fine art storage facility. Later this year the raw space pictured here, at 1240 Minnesota Street, will be converted into 30 artist studios, a wood shop, a digital studio, and a print studio. Check out the slideshow above, and see the companion story for more on the rise of this ambitious new art district.
