Production Studios

The Granoff Center‘s four Production Studios  characterize the central goals of the Center and will facilitate entirely new possibilities for interdisciplinary work in the arts at Brown. Flexible production space of this kind will improve the level of work for both teaching and research and will enable more ambitious multi-media installations, and performance-based works.

Cohen Gallery
