New Arts Center Provides Creative Space In Southeast San Diego
When the pandemic started, artists had to reconcile with the fact that their ability to publicly display their creative endeavors in-person would all but disappear. Now, with galleries and museums reopening, many in the arts world are rejoicing.
However, there are still a number of neglected communities in San Diego that suffer from a distinct lack of creative spaces. In a story first covered by the San Diego Union-Tribune, one Southeast San Diego resident sought to remedy that problem by opening the Kali Artists Konnect Arts and Culture Center in Chollas View.
Kim Phillips-Pea, president of the Southeast Art Team, collaborated with a property owner of a vacant one story residential building to turn the space into a creative oasis for artists in the area.
