BEST MULTIPURPOSE BUILDING 

City Ice Arts

Critics' Choice

More than anywhere else in town, City Ice Arts blends art and commerce. In a long, narrow building that sits where Campbell Street dead-ends into railroad tracks just north of Truman Medical Center, it houses a gallery, artist studios, and offices for a cluster of small businesses. Where else can you get married, order letterpress business cards, buy locally grown produce, read zines and pick up some ice, all in the same building? The gallery, headed by artist Gehry Kohler, has put on solo and small-group exhibitions by both emerging and long-established local artists. It's rarely dormant — Ashley Anders' one-night-only, music-and-art-infused Gorilla Events fill the space between exhibitions. City Ice Arts' combination of art and entrepreneurship makes sense; successful artists and businesspeople are both creative risk-takers. Here's hoping other spaces in town follow this forward-thinking example.
