Anythink Announces Construction of The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms
Anythink will begin construction on their new digital learning lab, The Studio at Anythink Wright Farms, on Jan. 14, 2013.
The Studio, slated to open in March 2013, will serve as a digital learning lab for teens, designed with an emphasis in digital media and collaboration/creativity in digital
production. Features will include state-of-the-art video equipment, a green screen and a recording studio.
Minimal construction is expected to last 3-5 weeks at the Anythink Wright Farms location in Thornton, Colo. During this time, Anythink customers will still have access to
the full range of services, books and equipment. Anythink Wright Farms will be repurposing existing space for The Studio and will maintain normal hours of operation
and programming throughout the construction.
The Studio is made possible from a $100,000 grant funded by the Institute for Museum and Library Services and the John D. and Cather T. MacArthur Foundation. Anythink is
one of the first 12 museums and libraries in the U.S. to receive this grant and serve as the national prototype for the learning labs project.
