I have lived in this city for 3 years now and very close to the Pearl Company. As an artist myself, I often don't have money to go to their events. I walk by it regularly on on way to the grocery store and notice they are having some sort of opening. The front doors are very unwelcoming and quite frankly the people I have seen coming or going look down their noses at you. So why would I care if they close the doors permanently? Arts are for the people, all people, poor or wealthy. If an artist feels unwelcome there is something wrong. I could understand the city bending rules and helping get around the expensive fees if they catered to all folks but I believe most people in my neighbourhood wouldn't even miss it.
