This is a must stop for all visitors to St. Joseph and residents alike. A historical building that once manufactured boxes is now impressive space for local artists. Three galleries of current shows, a high quality gift shop filled with works of artists and writers and a comfortable theatre to see musical and dramatic performances. It also has a bar... More

A nice combination of art gallery, event space, and artist's galleries. We had a good time wandering around looking at the exhibits (some of which are for sale) as well as looking at the artist's working space. A great resource for the city of St. Joseph and a nice 30-60 minute visit for tourists.

I'm so glad I discovered the Box Factory for the Arts on a recent trip to St. Joseph! It was a truly memorable experience!! I loved seeing all of the beautiful artwork on display, learning about the history of the building, and talking to a couple of local artists who have their studios there. Both artists went out of their... More

A fisherman on the Pier suggested it to us. We had past it once on the way to dinner after closing but never went in. Rotating exhibits by different artists as well as small studios for a number of local artists in the lower level. If the studio door was open, it meant the artist was in and feel free... More

Wonderful gallery in a fantastic space. Always neat to see what they have. Make sure you tour the whole space. I always thought this would also be a great space for a small wedding reception.

The building is great to visit and enjoy some of its old history. The collection of artist provides something for every one. It is also a very good place to go and just chat with the artist as they are a very friendly and welcoming group of people.

My wife and I have a vacation home in St. Joe, and often visit the Box Factory for the new local exhibits, on-site artisans, and especially the Saturday night concerts featuring regional and often eclectic live music. The staff is very friendly, the concert costs are very reasonable, and the building itself is an interesting historical structure as well. There... More

Be sure to check out what's happening at "the box". Almost every Saturday night there is live music with admission usually $10. Local artists mainly. Good times! Occasionally they serve wine but usually soft drinks.
