Compound, a nonprofit organization focused on art and holistic health, has officially opened to the public today after pushing back its grand opening date not once, but twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The 15,000-square-foot space in Zaferia District, which is a hybrid art gallery, holistic healing center, retail space and soon-to-be restaurant, can now finally welcome people through its doors. Needless to say, organizers are very excited.

“From the very beginning, we dreamed of creating a place that is affirming, inclusive and open. We are thrilled to finally open our doors and welcome in our community to hold space, heal, grow and feel a sense of belonging,” Compound founder, Megan Tagliaferri, said in a statement.

Though admission and programming are free, Compound is limiting capacity and requires registration to enter which you can fill out online, here.

Classes you can register for include various yoga and meditation classes, gardening and art workshops, and even a photojournalism workshop at the end of July.

For those who would like to check out the space, which features two simultaneous art exhibitions and a sculpture garden, you can register for the “General Admission” slots online.

Compound is at 1395 Coronado Ave., Long Beach.
