THERE ONCE WAS PARKING

 

A look at how the convergence of people and place can bring about the beauty that is art, this show is a celebration of culture and our ability to come together to celebrate our ethnic and cultural diversities. 

 

As neighborhoods become more gentrified and we see the rise of “affordable luxury living,” the loss of free parking, and the ever-growing unattainable cookie-cutter lifestyle, we naturally seek a mosaic that gives a voice to inclusion, and a place of gather. There Once Was Parking turns the gallery setting into a creative space to explore art, music, and food through a multitude of free events and thoughtful conversation. Questions? You won't be afraid to ask.
