Character Plant is a new arts organization housed in an old YMCA gymnasium in Astoria, Oregon. Upon opening, the 3000 square foot space will operate as a gallery, performance venue and creative area. The name for the space comes from the transom window above the 12th street entrance which once read “Astoria’s Character Building Plant”.
