Short History

ActivistArtistA Gallery Grand Opening: November 11, 2011

Rolando Chang Barrero's ActivistArtistA Bay Gates Project began with the installation of Chan Shephard's "Madrina," which adorns the curator's studio gate. The last installment completed to date was Lucia Hare-Leahy's "Wild West Hero," projected animation on April 26, 2012.
Like a phoenix, the Boynton Beach Art District has risen high and continues to soar.
Instead of ashes, this phoenix was raised for the oil slicks of the industrial neighborhood just west of I95 off of Boynton Beach Blvd., on West Industrial Ave.

The history of The District begins back to the late 80's when artist Richard Beau-Lieu first took to the area. Opening a studio and initiating the cleanup of the rubbish filled street, Richard was intrumental in getting the area recognized as the Neighborhood Arts District of Boynton Beach in 1989.
