If you’re a regular reader of the Modernica Blog, you’ve probably seen our posts about the struggle to keep the Fulton Mall alive. The dilemma recently took a disastrous turn, when the Fresno City Council voted to tear out the modern art laden pedestrian walkways and replace them with an average city street.
Now it’s only a matter of time before this focal point of mid-century modern art and design - one of Garret Eckbo’s masterworks – is utterly destroyed. The only small ray of hope is a lawsuit that is being filed by 1000 Friends of Fresno in a last-ditch effort to preserve the mall and the invaluable array of mid-century sculptures held within it.
Yes, You Can Help
1000 Friends of Fresno is a small non-profit organization that does not currently have the funds to launch a full-scale lawsuit that could save the Fresno Mall. Any small donation could make a big difference in their efforts. If you’d like to get involved, click here to donate, or go to the 1000 Friends of Fresno site to learn more.
