    Article Authors: Lynn Susholtz and Leslie Ryan

    "Last spring I was asked by Julie Voelker-Morris, co-editor of CultureWork, to write an article about my involvement as an artist in the redevelopment of North Park.

    In the case of artist Lynn Susholtz, she started a gallery for her neighborhood. She purchased the former North Park Produce and turned it into Art Produce Gallery, which is not only a storefront gallery entirely visible from the sidewalk on University Avenue, but “a kind of cultural collective urban community center” with three different artist studios, a coffee shop and a gallery “to create the kind of synergy that would happen in a cultural space." Read more...
