The Jax Building has been an integral part of the Lowertown art scene for over 35 years. Artist work spaces are available for rent on a month to month basis. The Jax Building is one of the few non-residential options for artists in Lowertown. Our vibrant community is made up of artists of all kinds, including painters, photographers, woodworkers, dancers, sculptors, and clothing designers. The street level is anchored by Three Sisters, an eclectic artist run store, the funky Lowertown Bike Shop, and the renowned Classical Ballet Academy, established in 1987. The building is also the headquarters of Books For Africa, whose colorful sign adorns the front of the building.
