The Regional Theater of the Palouse held a grand opening for its Corner Art Gallery and Thrift Boutique on Saturday. "R-TOP" is a non-profit theatrical organization that gives local actors the chance to perform in Broadway classics and award-winning shows.
"Art is a good thing for any city," said RTOP Board Member Randy Emerson. "I mean, especially with children. Every kid should have the chance to go see a live play, or the chance to be in one."
The Regional Theater of the Palouse is located downtown on Grand Avenue and the Corner Art Gallery is just a couple doors down. It showcases paintings, photographs, and sculptures while providing room for the actors to rehearse their theatrical productions. The new "R-TOP Corner" is Pullman's only off-campus art gallery.
