Muncie’s Maker ForceBy Grace McCormick / May 2, 2022
A former 80,000-square-foot laundry facility in Muncie holds limitless possibilities. Boombox music fills the second floor while artists move tables to set up for First Thursday, a monthly event to draw people to explore art and culture downtown. A woodworker helps children build birdhouses while Steven Knipp colors hair in his salon a few doors down. Adjacent businesses invite people in for gift shopping or ax throwing.
