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.

IMAGINATION Abstract Art Exhibit

This exhibit of abstract works provides a vibrant and imaginative sensory experience. The artist’s unique styles have varying degrees of abstraction from reality. The work is created using subliminal mark making including lines, color, brush stroke, and composition. The viewer is encouraged to feel, imagine, and interpret the artwork. Informed and inspired by art history’s master painters, Plains Abstract Artists include both regionally renowned and emerging artists. The artists developed their skills and expression through years of study and practice. Many regularly paint together at Plains Art Museum’s Center for Creativity where they are led by Marjorie Schlossman.

Fountain of Abundance

The Fountain of Abundance, created by Richard Szeitz, is an iconic piece of art that plays backdrop to thousands of photos and memories created at West Acres. Each season, we emphasize its beauty with temporary art installations, created by local businesses and artists.

The Fountain is also one of the many ways you can give back to the community through West Acres. All the change collected funds charities and families in need within our community at any given time. Make a wish and make a difference!
