Summary:

The west side has rich culture and history. I want to create a center for visual and performing arts that can bring neighbors to suffer as well as people outside the neighborhood to share ideas and gather. This space would ideally have a gallery, classroom performance space as well as a café or restaurant. The center would provide programs for local schools senior center, adults alike. Arts can revitalize communities.
