The CORK district seems like a great idea though if one drives or walks there, it seems kind of closed up and none of the design spaces or galleries seem inviting or easily identifiable entrances that are welcoming to people seeking art and creative energy.

I love that place ; it has expanded quickly and shows the local vibrancy of the arts scene. I agree it is difficult to just drop in and take a look.

It's my understanding from someone who works there that it is more of a working location and caters to the daily needs of the individual tenants, not always open for public tours or walk-ins. However, of course, they have occasional presentations and shows, etc.
