The Arts Asylum, a studio space, performance venue and artist refuge will cease operations at its 1000 E. Ninth Street location in the Paseo West neighborhood at the end of this year. The crew hosted happy hour and tours of the historic building on Friday, Dec. 10. They are relocating to the A to Z Theatrical Campus at 800 E. Meyer Blvd. in Brookside East, where they plan to invest in the creation of a new space for theater, events and learning.
