Community Pump House Studio
The Pump House Art Studio at Mount St. Francis has undergone exciting initial renovations and is now open for the community! Celebrate with us on Valentine’s Day, February 14th at 12:00 noon during the ribbon-cutting ceremony with special guests, including Josh Kornberg from the Caesars Foundation of Floyd County and Fr. Martin Day, OFM Conv.
With funding from the Caesars Foundation of Floyd County, the Pump House Art Studio will offer a variety of community classes and events, including yoga, music instruction, dance classes, poetry and writing workshops, and much more. With 728 sq. ft of space, high ceilings, new LED lighting, and large windows for natural light, the studio is the perfect place to come together and create.
Surrounded by nature in a 400-acre nature sanctuary, the Pump House Art Studio is located within a vibrant art campus that includes the Mary Anderson Center Gallery and Clay Studio and the Calving Barn Studios. The friars at Mount St. Francis intended the Pump House Studio to be a place where the community can come together to share common interests in art. With the addition of the newly renovated Pump House Art Studio, the arts campus offers accessible, diverse art programs in one location, elevating Floyd County and the region through creativity and inclusion.
Whether you’re an artist, teacher, or just someone who loves to create, the Pump House Art Studio is the perfect place for you. Apply for studio usage today and help others find the artist in themselves. At Mount St. Francis, beauty and spirit brought to life through art will continue to be honored and celebrated. Come. Create. Celebrate.
