This Video is for a project I'm working on with the City of Yreka as a proposal to create a downtown Arts Center and training facility. This project is designed to serve several purposes. A Concierge Service for the greater Yreka area. This would be a combined service for all the businesses, restaurants and motels, hotels, B&B's, etc. As an center for the Arts we would be creating small studio spaces for artists, work areas, and meeting areas for classes, and general areas for artists to spend time together. This space will also function as an introduction for tourists to the Yreka community to support and enhance work our Chamber is doing. As a pass through from the parking lot to the Miner St. /Broadway/ Lane St. historic district. An introduction to the History of Yreka would be presented in a pictorial review.

Yreka Committee for Historic Preservation is currently looking at a proposal for the blacks building where 10 Art Studio spaces would be created. These would be rented out to local artists for spaces to do there work. This idea is already working at St. Mark's Preservation Square. Stop by and see our studio spaces to give you an idea how this might work at the Black's Building. The idea is that by getting artist to move their studio spaces down town more activity will begin to happen down town. The artist will the following activities: the artists will be down town looking for lunch etc. more often, locals will frequent down town more often to see whats going on, the art walks have shown this, tourists will tour the down town area because of increased interest. What do you think? This is still in the planning stage. And we are always looking for ideas.
