To help uncover the mystery of the Random School. The school is known to anybody that grew up here in Eureka. It is abandoned and nearing the stage where it will be torn down. It was inhabited by an artist for some time and the scale of the project makes it difficult to deal with. My friend Josh from the small town studio completed a study of possibilities that is an elegant solution. We are keeping this project alive and hoping for a solution. The school is desperately searching for it’s voice and I hope that it still has something to teach us all.

Proposed Solution

City Drug is located in a prominent location in the downtown core of Eureka Kansas. The locals remember it as the local drugstore and hangout of their youth. We are working to turn it into a creative incubator facility for small creative startup companies and services.

It can still be a hangout.

Memorial Hall, in it’s day provided an extraordinary performance venue. It is time to bring it back to life.

There is a movement afoot to reestablish Memorial Hall as a regional performing arts center. In the past there have been numerous performances by the likes of Johnny Cash and many other performers. We are planning:

Max Gomez

I had the pleasure to spend some time with Max in Tulsa as he was passing thru, he is an extraordinary singer songwriter.

We are working to bring Max to Eureka for a performance. This will be very hard to pull off, he is very busy these days. I may have to have his mother convince him to come, she lives just outside of town … where the pavement ends.
