TCY has only been a part of the Arts District story since 2013, but the history of our space and the neighborhood goes back much further. The Container Yard site was actually the first mass production manufacturing plant for Japanese ice cream mochi company, Mikawaya. This property is actual made up of 4 smaller lots which were pieced together over time by the late Francis Hashimoto and her husband, both whom have left a legacy of fearlessness and creativity which just seemed to be a part of the DNA of the space. From that point onward, we simply followed our instincts and attempted to create what we felt was our own haven for creativity. Pursuing our own love for art and creative building, we simply started to hack, cut, paint and weld our way to where we are today. All we can say is that having this space has been an absolute opportunity and blessing and we're grateful for collaborations which are willing to support our creative experiments and also extremely grateful to all of the artists who have supported us with their art over the years.
