Range Studio

Tiny, mobile art spaces deployed in the public realm


David Szlasa


The project consists of a small mobile workspace and a micro artist residency program composed by two tiny art studios founded in Oakland. Studio 1 is a solar powered art studio which was built on the back of a flatbed trailer and Studio 2 was built in collaboration with students at Stanford University, both spaces are composed of second-hand materials.
The project supports artists' creative work and advocates for sustainable solutions for artists and the arts community in creating an adaptable and agile solution to the shortage of affordable art spaces in urban areas and the need for flexible, short-term programming in rural areas.
