Art instructor Michael Townsend agonized over where he and his friends would go when developers tore down the abandoned warehouse the collective called home.
Michael told them about a space he’d seen on one of his runs by Providence Place Mall. “There’s a gap between the walls. It’s an odd space but it could work. Artistic justice.”
Eight artists moved lamps, furniture and electronics into their clandestine accommodations.
After four years, mall police discovered the apartment and Michael was taken into custody.
The criminal court judge, impressed by Michael’s sheer audacity, handed him a mere misdemeanor charge for trespassing.
