CoRK Welcomes a Special Curated Show for RAP's 2012 Spring Tour of Homes

Story by Guest Blogger Anna Rodgers, House Captain for Art House (and preservationist extraordinaire)

Every year, RAP's Home Tour features one house, devoid of furniture, that serves as a space for local artists.  It is RAP's belief that artists are an essential component to a neighborhoods vitality, so the organization does what it can to foster the growth of the "creative class." This year is, by far, no exception.  Join us at CoRK for an unforgettable Art House--this weekend: Saturday, April 21 and Sunday, April 22.
