City council has agreed to do business with the owners of a local art shop in order to have an arts centre at Prince Arthur’s Landing.
Council voted in favour of doing business with Lorraine Cull and Angela Jensen, owner of the Painted Turtle Art Shop, at Monday night’s meeting. Cull and Jensen were the only group to submit a proposal to operate the Baggage Building Arts Centre located in the renovated and expanded freight shed.
The art centre will offer multi-disciplinary community arts programming and house a variety of registered and drop-in activities.
There will also be opportunities for selling and displaying locally made works of art and artisan products.
The city plans to open the centre on June 15.
