Now that Phase 1 of the Doris Miller Memorial has been unveiled, Waco Cultural Arts is revisiting a project that was put on the back burner.

In 2014, Waco Cultural Arts President Doreen Ravenscroft bought the old drug store next to Lula Jane's on Elm Avenue.

Her plan is to make it into an arts hub called ArtPlace.

She has already invested $250,000 in the project, but she said it will take $1.5 million to bring it to life.

"The most exciting thing is creating it," Ravenscroft said. "It can be science, it can be dance, it can be theatre, it can be storytelling, it can filming."

With renderings complete, Ravenscroft is waiting for the City of Waco to approve construction plans.

It all goes as she hopes, ArtPlace could open as early as 2020.

If you're interested in helping with the project, you can contact Ravenscroft at 254-723-6830.
