About Continental Gin Building
The Continental Gin Building was built in 1888 by Robert S. Munger to be a series of warehouses along Elm Street and Trunk Avenue used in the manufacturing of Cotton Gins which were distributed across the nation. At one point during the height of cotton manufacturing 1/6th of the world's cotton was produced within a 150 mile radius of the building.
After the Continental Gin Company closed in 1962, it became an elevator manufacturing company in 1963. In 1982, the building was converted into the artist community it is known for today. Artists in the building are very diverse in mediums ranging from visual art, apparel design, graphic design, photography, interior design, sculpture, film, glasswork, and more.
For over 30 years, the Continental Gin Building has housed professional studio spaces for local Dallas artists in the Deep Ellum neighborhood. Covering 61,000 sq. ft. of space on 3 floors, the studios are open to the public each spring and fall.
