Details on event location:

There is a public parking garage right across the street in front of our door on our side of the building.  There is a one way street starting on the south side of the garage off Welch, goes around in front of the Union Building, and then passes our building on the north side of the garage going back to Welch.

Go in our doors across from the garage and the studios will be right there.

The event is in Room 184.
