Attended the Illuxcon show 2018. The location itself is already very inviting. The loft character is creative. The finish of the floors with hardwood flooring gives the location a very warm and welcoming feeling

Stopped here on a whim with friends. Worth the $10 admission to see lots of artists at work. Neat exhibits and explanations. Food and art for purchase. Several buildings and floors of art to explore. Glass blowing and stained glasses were favorites.
