A good idea takes on a life of its own—that’s the story of Bihl Haus Arts Center and the GO! Arts Program.
The story starts in an all-too familiar setting: an historic structure—this one in San Antonio, Texas—that had fallen into disrepair. By the early 2000s, the home known as Bihl Haus, named after its first resident and dating back to 1920, was dilapidated and crumbling, literally a shell of its former self, for it resembled a bombed-out building, graffiti and all. Meanwhile, another threat loomed for the building that boasted both architectural and historical significance: it stood on land eyed by developers.
