Just a few doors down from the lot in the photo above, where “Sponge Bob” poses, the Sanctuary’s Underground Art Gallery is a remodeled 280 sq. ft. museum quality gallery exposition space. The walls are painted matte white for traditional gallery appearance and the ceiling exposes extensive track lighting that can be adjusted to suite any exhibit. It’s uniqueness lies in its upstairs large cafe wall and downstairs hallway linearity, allowing the viewer to flow through the space.
