release party and art exhibition

I'm a singer-songwriter coming out with my 2nd EP this winter and looking for an art gallery / performance space for the release party. My hopes are to have my visual artist friends exhibit their pieces as well as my musical artist friends perform as opening acts. Your space looks perfect for both occasions with your adjacent empty exhibit room!

performance-based music video

We are filming a video. Performance based music video in various locations. Director has asked if there were any outdoor locations we could use. Do you require a permit for filming? What would it be possible to have 20 people on set, or is it strictly 15.

filming a music video

I wanted to look into filming a music video at this location. First off, is the space available at the above date and time frame, the 22nd, 12pm - 5pm? And secondly, in the space, do you have a ladder that can reach the ceiling if I was looking to mount two lights to the wooden rafters to shine down as spotlights on the performers? I look forward to hearing back from you!
