Red Museum works to keep impacting Sacramento's art scene

​Red Museum, an underground arts and performance space north of downtown Sacramento, was closed by the city of Sacramento in July 2017 for a variety of code violations. Electricians with the local electrical union volunteered their services to bring the building back up to code, and city officials are confident the space will reopen soon.
