The ActivistArtistA Bay Gates Project, an ongoing outdoor exhibition, began in 2011 to infuse the blighted Industrial Park with colorful murals. Since then, artists have been painting the warehouse district’s bay doors and walls with the encouragement from the Boynton Beach Arts Commission and Ray Marsincowski, owner of the Warehouse District. Tour groups, monthly Art Walks and Open Mic Nights continue to draw visitors to Boynton Beach.
