The location will change, but the mission and the music will remain the same.

On Nov. 1, Central City Recording will vacate its storefront at 3335 N. High St. to begin building a bigger, better space inside Wonderland, the mixed-use arts complex taking shape in Italian Village.

Central City President Andrew Dodson didn't have an exact date for when the new space would be up and running. In the meantime, he said, his staff would be able to pick up new projects on a case-by-case basis.

"It's not like we won't exist - we just won't have a storefront," Dodson said. "We know the light at the end of the tunnel. We're going to have a badass studio in the future."

Wonderland is slated to become a nonprofit "ecosystem" where artists in different disciplines can collaborate and interact with the community. Similarly, Central City envisions a state-of-the-art space that will be more available to musicians and producers with their own unique ideas.

The company recently was nominated for a Community Arts Partnership Award from the Greater Columbus Arts Council.

"The new studio is going to be a total open-source kind of thing," Dodson explained. "It goes hand in hand with the Wonderland concept - that it's here for everybody."
