College Of The Arts

I had been meaning to visit this place for a few years lol (sometimes I lag….) I came across it when it first closed, and then a few times after that, when the graffiti had started to be more apparent.  Well better late than never – I finally checked it out!  YAY!!

All it took was a brisk walk down a side alley, a crawl under a roll up door that was cracked open about a foot, and we were in!  No muss, no fuss!  I do have to say though…the smell that filled my nose as soon as I crawled under that rolling door was like an assault on my senses lol!  It smelled of chemicals and mildew and old food.  It was crazy haha.  The area we entered into seemed to be some kind of warehouse and it was pitch black!  Luckily one of us had a flashlight and we all had a light from our phones.

We made our way through this huge, dark part of the building all the way to the other side, where we were able to walk through some double doors.  We walked around, in and out of this huge building and found some pretty cool things to photograph.  I’d say we were there for about an hour, maybe hour and a half when we ran into a homeless man as we were wrapping up.  He came in, looked at us, stood there and went about eating his hamburger bun.  I finished taking my picture (of the ‘cropping’ negative) and we started heading out.  He tried to talk us into venturing to some concrete, dark part of the building to see some graffiti (which we think was the part we had entered from), but either way, we politely declined and headed out.

It was a super fun day, exploring with my girls 🙂
