I spent a portion of Saturday afternoon with Mrs. B. on the Open Studio Tour, visiting a variety of local artists, including those in the Historic Steinfeld Warehouse.
Now comes word that those folks (Dinnerware, Alamo Woodworkers, Chax Press, Elizabeth Criger, Mary Theresa Dietz, Cynthia Miller) and the tenants in the Zee Gallery Warehouse are being ordered out by ADoT by Jan. 15. Why? So the city can take over the buildings and fix them up for the artists to move back in.
How long will this take? It's evidently anyone's guess, since the city doesn't have the funds to do the restoration work. Moving sale, anyone?
