MORE TO COME Mix-Tape is the first permanent immersive experience by Factory Obscura. In a world of drag-and-drop, we’re hand-crafting our own 20th-century take on the classic audio autobiography. In this creative space we’ll weave a grassroots “playlist” of music that has inspired our journey into an immersive visual, auditory, and tactile art experience just for you. Save the date for the opening of the full 6,000 sq ft Mix-Tape experience on September 21, 2019. www.factoryobscura.fun
