Pictures of West Oaks Mall

I was contacted a few weeks ago by Sharsten Plenge the Creative Director of Pacific Retail Capital Partners about a project that is coming into fruition in a very unlikely place; The old West Oaks Mall on Highway Six and 59, about twenty minutes outside the city. The idea, Sharston said, is to take 50,000 sf(the entire floor of the old JC Penny) and turn it into studios, art studios, free of rent. Having read about the Brayerroom, she informed me that we may have similar interests. I responded after reading her proposal that I would be happy to help in any way I can. Ideally, I am planning on throwing an opening show. A way to get a visualized word out among the arts community, as well as promoting a cultural apex in a place that in the past has had a lack of surrounding support. Today was my first glimpse into what will be the “West Oaks Mall Arts House.”
