When the Lakewood Arts Council was told it needed to find new space due to the current location at 85 S. Union being demolished, it became a laborious task trying to secure a spot that would meet all our needs and be affordable. Eventually the current space next to Casa Bonita became available with some help from 40 West and the owners of Lamar Station Plaza. Many of our members and coop artists became demolition and construction experts in order to turn this run-down location into the beautiful light and airy community center and gallery that it is now. And this week, we celebrate 2 years at our new address! Look back on all that went into creating our new space -- here's some photos provided by Ann Quinn.
And if you haven't stopped in the gallery recently -- come on in and check out the art and all the class and event offerings!
