TiON was an art gallery and venue located off Myers, later renamed 'The Frame.' It was established in November of 2008. It was established originally to host art, produce film and act as a Creative Design Firm of sorts. The walls were covered with Murals that changed and evolved regularly. The space was used sometimes as a space to practice music and/or dance. It hosted several art shows and had collaborated with members of the defunct 'Crux.'
It hosted a number of art events ranging in their medium. The most notable shows were 'The Evolution of the Dreamer Series', 'The Cabaret,' the 'Boho Fashion Show,' several live performances and truly epic dance parties with intensive Visual Effects. It was an awesome little spot that fell into a nice industrial zoning loophole, allowing the blasting of a monstrous sound system that would normally result in a swift Citation.
The nearly 14 months of its' life was an amazing period in time where people from all walks of life could come to dance, create art and collaborate in an otherwise autonomous space. Connections were made, times were had and like all good things it had to come to an end. The TiON/The Frame encountered money problems and conflict of interest resulting in it's closure, with a final party titled 'Meow' on January 14th, 2009.
RIP TiON, The Frame ... The great times will live on in our memories, and in our hearts.
