It’s Part of a Grand Plan

The ultimate goal is to create community that enjoys the experience of arts in parks, and to introduce the idea of using the City-owned vacant buildings in Discovery Park to provide to the community much needed spaces for rehearsal, performances and arts education programs. One possible scenario:
