THE STUDIO

Sanctuary Studios was born out of a dream to live and work in an historic building with real character — like an old church. It also comes out of a philosophy that "home and studio" should literally be a sanctuary apart from the craziness of the world beyond. The studio, of course, would need to be located in an open, arts-friendly college town surrounded by beautiful countryside, wonderful people, clean air, clean water, spectacular lightning storms and billions of stars in the night sky.

It was a tall order, but after 18 months of painstaking research, such a town was found. That town is Las Vegas, New Mexico. The Original Las Vegas. The Authentic Las Vegas. The Real Deal.

Historically home to Apaches and Comanches, Spanish Conquistadors, Mexican settlers, frontier mountain-men, land-grant homesteaders, east-coast merchants, hard-riding cowboys, wild-west outlaws, tough-as-nails lawmen, railroad executives, commune-founding hippies and Roosevelt's Rough Riders, today Las Vegas is home to nomadic road-trippers, Hollywood filmmakers, lost vacationers, wandering bikers, college professors and urban expatriates. Las Vegas is unusual in it's history, culture and place in the American landscape. Completely unique among small cities of this size, Las Vegas is also home to three colleges and 100 years of film history — as old as Hollywood's — from the early Tom Mix shows to the Coen brother's Academy Award-winning No Country for Old Men, and Simon Pegg's Paul.

The building itself is located in an historic neighborhood that was built for the new railroad executives when the Santa Fe Railroad came to town. In fact, our beautifully restored train station is an Amtrak station that terminates in Downtown Los Angeles on one end and Downtown Chicago on the other. We even have a historic Harvey House Hotel, The Castaneda Hotel at the train station.

The sanctuary of the old church is now a multi-functional special event / performance space that can host live music and art exhibitions as well as lectures, workshops, panel discussions, public meetings, and other special events. It is also available as a location for film or television productions and photo shoots.
