Art Produce continues to grow
By Seth Combs May 10, 2016
Lynn Susholtz proudly looks around the garden and communal area of Art Produce, an art gallery and multi-use building in North Park. Five years ago, the garden area was an asphalt parking lot populated by homeless people. Nowadays, in addition to the communal picnic tables and potted herbs, there's a new sign, a new brewery tasting room and workers bustling to install new lights throughout the outside area.
It'd be easy to assume that Art Produce, after 15 years in business, is going through a second phase of growth and expansion, but Susholtz is quick to point out that the building's new additions and programs have been years in the making.
"This is phase 3.5 or something," says Susholtz, chuckling. She says there have been monumental changes over the years despite the consistent issue of funding. "I've always tried tot stay ahead of the neighborhood. To be flexible and responsive to the neighborhood while retaining an artist-centered cultural venue."
Art Produce was honored to receive this Resolution from the California Legislature by the Honorable Toni Atkins, Speaker Emeritus of the Assembly, acknowledging Art Produce's cultural and civic efforts in the community.
