Hello Friends!

As SPRING is finally just around the corner, we are ready to officially open our doors. A lot of you may not even know what we've been working on here for the past 5 months at the space formerly known as Foxglove Gallery, but our vision is blossoming.

Cocoon Room is a new multipurpose creative arts space in the Riverwest neighborhood with the purpose of community enrichment through the arts, music & fashion.

This space consists of art gallery where we will showcase local artists. Not only the work of painters and 2D artists, but we want all forms that people create. Film, installation, sculpture, poetry, bring in your ideas and lets create!

We are also an indie fashion boutique & vintage shop, where our fine collectors will be selling their unique and often one-of-a-kind treasure, and handmade items. We will be accepting consignment with local designers as well.

We are a music venue where we will have local & traveling performances by up and coming bands.

Lastly we envision a neighborhood art space, where people can come together to share ideas, create and inspire each other. Everyone is welcome to Cocoon Room, we want a violence free space where individuality & peace flow freely.

Come to our Official Launch Party March 30th, from the hours of 6-10pm! We are showcasing local artists paintings & fashion photography, music by various bands & friends including Slight Ghost, Myles Coyne & Jordan Maye, and members of Fresh Cut Collective, and opening the boutique! It's been very exciting and challenging getting everything ready for you all.

Stop by if even just for a bit! More info about the space and events will be available as well as contact info for interested artists.

While we are currently in hot pursuit of our Beer Permit, we are not projected to receive it for another 4-6 weeks. That said, we cannot and will not be serving beer at this event and we ask that you please refrain from bringing alcoholic beverages. Fear not, we will have the permit by summer! Feel free to run across the street to Riverwest Public House for shots in between acts!
