K Space Contemporary art gallery bringing unique, large scale art and events to La Palmera
CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas (March 27, 2018) – The art of shopping will soon take on a more literal meaning with the announcement of a new partnership between La Palmera and K Space Contemporary art gallery making the mall an extension of the K Space gallery located in downtown Corpus Christi.
As the oldest alternative art space in the Coastal Bend, the popular non-profit organization is dedicated to presenting and promoting contemporary art and providing a forum for emerging and mid-career artists whose works are experimental, non-commercial, or difficult to exhibit due to unusual installation requirements or site-specific ideas.
K Space Contemporary and La Palmera will celebrate the culture of the Coastal Bend by featuring large scale art installations year round throughout the mall, the first of which will be on display beginning in April in honor of Contemporary Art Month. La Palmera will also host a number of K Space Contemporary Summer Mural Art Camps, with students creating permanent, large scale interior murals for shoppers to enjoy.
“We have wanted to create a partnership like this for some time,” said Fred Walters, La Palmera vice president and general manager. “La Palmera is the perfect venue for these kinds of exhibits and events, providing a win-win for everyone: artists will gain the exposure they desire and need while our millions of shoppers gain an appreciation of art and find yet another reason to visit.”
