Arts for All at the Institute of Imagination located at 119 Bradley Street recently announced that their downtown Carrollton location would close; however, the nonprofit will remain active with several future adjustments. Director Gerald Byrd says, “We are opting for curbside only at this time due to the pandemic. Customers will be directed to a pickup location for their art projects.”
In the months prior to the pandemic, The Institute of the Imagination hosted birthday parties, art camps, creative sessions, and more. The institute has added to the creative buzz from patrons visiting area shops around it.
Recently, Arts for All had expanded into the former space of The Nest. This move helped provide an additional element of creativity to the science studio for children. When asked about the future plans of Arts for All, Gerald says, “At some point after the pandemic is over, we hope to establish a mobile van that allows us to go out and serve the community where they are.”
