2. Trans-Pecos, Ridgewood

First used in 2005 as the venue for Silent Barn, what is now Trans-Pecos is one of the most inclusive and community driven art spaces in and around the city. During the day, it functions as a community center, working with local partners to bring events such as free coding seminars, self-defense classes, and yoga to the area.

At night, it serves as a venue for all artists and events, from musicians and exhibitions to events like their recent Queer Valentines Day. With an environment strongly build on inclusivity, Trans-Pecos, located on 915 Wyckoff Avenue in Ridgewood, is a valuable space for art-driven youth and the community at large.
