Regional Showcase

West Acres Regional Showcase reflects a carefully chosen selection of local and regional artwork and limited-time displays that enhance the West Acres experience for shoppers and visitors. Each of the Mall’s five Courts reflects a permanent, themed component of Regional Showcase. We also launched our Artist in Residence Program in 2017, which features new artists every few months in an interactive pop-up studio of a local artist.
