Explore this former funeral home transformed to art gallery and performance venue, including the home of the Village Playhouse (costumes, stage, lights). Maybe try on some costumes! In the art gallery, enjoy the landscape photography of Chuck Sois or hands-on art projects for children and adults, with musical entertainment by American Idol finalist, Steve Beguhn. On the second floor, enjoy Erico’s art display, do some creative writing with Christi Craig, or learn some relaxation techniques from Scott Thomas’ Always A Better You Counseling Service.
Built in 1930 as Schubal & Slattery Funeral Home, this beautiful brick structure has characteristics reminiscent of a miniature castle. With the help of over 100 volunteers, Inspiration Studios opened its doors in the heart of West Allis, housing an art gallery and a community theatre. Experience a first hand look at the workings behind Erico’s Gallery, the Village Playhouse, Christi Craig’s Writing Studio, and Always A Better You Counseling Services through both guided and self guided tours.
