In 1997, Rob Silverman's photography studio was established at the Brewery Arts Complex. Since then we've moved spaces twice and for the past fifteen years are happiest in our current studio. The morning light is direct, followed by a beautiful window light that envelops the studio till dusk. Plus, black blinds are in place to block out any unwanted rays.

Once you arrive and go through gated security, continue to drive straight (approx. 200 ft.), where you’ll see Barbara’s at the Brewery (yellow building). You can park in any un-marked spot. The entrance to the building is immediately to the left of the restaurant and has “620” over a yellow boxed loading zone area. The studio is on the second floor. If freight elevator access is required, first visit the studio to obtain key.

The creation of the Brewery Arts Complex began in 1982 at the site of the Pabst Blue Ribbon Brewery. With the passing of the Artist-In-Residence code, artists could rent live/work space in industrially zoned buildings.
The Brewery also hosts a twice annual art walk. The next art walk is scheduled for April 6 & April 7 2024, from 11 am to 6 pm.
Barbara's at the Brewery is located
on-site and offers a tasty menu, craft beers and cocktails. Perfect for lunch or after shoot food and libations.
