Lets get real folks... Over 11 years with no permits, endless safety and code violations and not one tax was paid. It's amazing the city let it fly as long as it did, it was never really "under the radar".
While I'm amazed at all that has been done over the years and that was nurtured in that space I have to say , the ARK is not dead... Simply transitioning. Ark stood for- Artists Resource Kollaborative /Kollective and that was what the downstairs was supposed to house, an education, visual and performing arts resource/ exhibition center as well as the bike project and recycle for the arts.
After school art programs were to be offered to kids of all ages in the community.... Yet as awesome as the bike project and iron rail is... They took over years ago and all the other projects in the space have been long neglected.
