The Rumpus Room
The Rumpus Room is a space for artists to show work-in-progress before it falls into the hypnotic, vacillating carousel of pay-as-you-go galleries or before it is swept away into the fast-flowing, treacherous current of the contemporary consumer art market. Located in a downtown suburban garage, The Rumpus Room offers visual artists and performance artists a space in which to simply come play. It
seeks to create an interval for the development of experimental and unresolved work so that the artist and their work can engage with peer and audience response. Remaining true to the definition of rumpus room, The Rumpus Room is all about having fun and playing.

Ashlee and his partner ran The Rumpus Room from Janurary 2013 to November 2015.
