Wolfe’s primary studio is made up of a complex of former school buildings in Marinette, Wisconsin. The former Garfield Technical School is an 11,000 square-foot building built in 1940. A total renovation was completed in late 2016 and now houses Wolfe’s three painting studios, his woodworking shop, welding studio, drawing studio, design studio, and small apartment. The Lincoln School next door was a WPA project constructed in the 1930’s. It is a gorgeous Art Deco building of 32,000 square feet. It is currently a storage space and will become additional studio space in the next few years. The two buildings create a large courtyard in the space between them. This large outdoor area provides a yard for large-scale outdoor metal work.

Rusty Wolfe's Studio B has just opened on Main Street in Marinette, Wisconsin. The 4,000 square foot gallery space is housed inside a historic downtown building. On the second floor of the former Globe Furnishings Building, Wolfe has created a showroom that rivals New York gallery lofts. More than one hundred works of painting, sculpture, and furniture are on display. The work spans Wolfe's thirty-year career in the visual arts.
