About the Project
Mini Mart City Park, initiated by SuttonBeresCuller, is a community-focused project in the process of transforming a former gas station into a site-specific, pocket park and cultural center. There are over 700 derelict, gas stations in the Puget Sound region and over 200,000 nationwide. In 2005 it was SuttonBeresCuller's vision to identify and purchase one such property in King County and rehabilitate it, proving the potential of art to propel a project that simultaneously repairs damaged land while providing shared, multi-use cultural space.
