Arts-minded retail center, The Agora Borealis, will replace defunct Lake Street Dance Hall at 421 Lake St.
At the historic and charming 421 Lake St site of the former Lake Street Dance Hall an enthusiastic young building owner named Katy Larsen is gutting and re-doing the space. It will be an arts-minded retail destination called The Agora Borealis.
"The Agora Borealis would like to invite artists to send pictures of their work they would like to submit for admission into our store," writes Larsen. "We have about 3,000 sq. feet of retail space that we hope to fill with all kinds of goods, ranging from furniture, jewelry, decor, lighting, paintings, sculpture and other items. The set up will reflect natural indoor and outdoor settings and will blend all of our artists' products together."
"Not everyone will make the first round of submissions for our grand opening - which may be in May - but please be patient because there will be much change over throughout the seasons. Each contract will be discussed with each artist and signed by both parties before opening. If you are interested or have any other questions or concerns, please contact me at theAgoraBorealis@gmail.com or by phone @318.243.1469." Photo Katy Larsen.
