The Light Factory is moving to Central Avenue, where the organization is putting in a new, permanent location in Charlotte's Plaza Midwood area. Its Kickstarter project to raise funds to support the construction of two new galleries, a darkroom and a digital classroom at its new location at 1817 Central Avenue has been a success. The Light Factory Contemporary Museum of Photography and Film is one of only four national, nonprofit museums in the nation focused on the art of photography and film.
