Arts on Union Artist Christine Goldbeck opines on “Soul of the Community,” a study about why we love where we live and why it matters.
Artists often are fixer-uppers. We’ll use ourselves as one example. We bought what had been a dental office and made it an art gallery and studio with awesome gardens and a home above. It’s a work in progress. That’s the beauty of rescuing a place, a space. We have artist friends who have purchased hovels and turned them into awesome, unique homes and businesses. We’ve been involved in some of this. Give us a foundation and we make a space that goes back on the tax rolls and helps increase the value of the neighborhood.
