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.

Fountain of Abundance

The Fountain of Abundance, created by Richard Sykes, 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. This spring’s installation is by Love Always Floral, and features hanging vines of wisteria flowers. The wisteria also extends into our newest addition to Fountain Court – wooden pergolas handcrafted by our Operations team, located directly beside the Fountain. The pergolas are a perfect place for sipping coffee or enjoying a snack!

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!
