Formerly a soap factory, this space of the same name was home to the National Purity Soap Company. It is now an independent and vibrant art gallery showcasing an eclectic program of contemporary and progressive art. It retains some of the factory interiors and industrial atmosphere with exposed beams and unrefined equipment that make for a unique backdrop to exhibitions and performing arts.
