Retail Space in Marin County Becomes “Space” Museum

A California education foundation and a large commercial property owner have formed an alliance to have a museum-quality space exploration exhibit in a prime Marin County retail space.

The W Foundation (TWF) and The Walter Kieckhefer Company (WKC) have established a pilot program in which TWF will establish a space education exhibit in one of WKC’s marquee retail spots located in the upscale Ignacio neighborhood of Marin County.
“This is a “win, win” for our organization, the property
owner and the community. Hopefully, this idea will gain traction with other groups across the country because there are so many vacant retail spaces that need to be filled. Museums gain access to high traffic areas through temporary exhibits in secure locations, and the public gains a new education venue in their neighborhood.” Says Ken Winans, co-president of The W Foundation.

The event called, “Novato Space Fest” will be held at the Pacheco Plaza (366 Ignacio Blvd, Novato) from July 29-31. For more information, contact The W Foundation www.thewfoundation.org
