MECCA (Materials Exchange Center for Community Arts) offers programs, workshops, materials, studio space and a gallery for local artists throughout the year on site and around the community. As a non-profit, the need for fundraising is ongoing. Pacific Realty, through Christian Fox, has donated the use of downtown locations for numerous events for MECCA.
Pacific Real Estate provided the space for the Object Afterlife art challenge exhibit during the Eugene Celebration 2012, and the Raise a Glass to MECCA annual fundraiser, involving wine tasting, music, and an art auction, was held in the beautiful Broadway Commerce Center. Creating opportunities for the arts helps to revitalize downtown, bringing people to dine and do business as well as showcasing available properties. It’s a win-win.
