Samuel Farrazaino; Gail Howard
As a result of his own search for affordable, appropriately-sized workspace, sculptor Samuel Farrazaino became the accidental developer of artists’ studios. After subdividing leased spaces in two buildings in downtown and West Seattle, in 2006, he purchased an old World War II-era factory building in the industrial neighborhood of Georgetown on Seattle’s south side. Investing his own money and years of sweat equity in the face of financial and environmental challenges, Farrazaino and a team of like-minded artists built Equinox Studios. In the course of building a home for working artists, he created a thriving business enterprise and a mutually supportive community.
