The Ringling School of Art and Design recently acquired the Shell Station at the corner of N Tamiami Trail and Martin Luther King, Jr. Dr. This station had been a hangout for drug dealers for years and the activity could not be stopped.
That is until RSAD bought the property.
After letting the students do a little art work on the building, it was leveled.
RSAD has not yet determined the future of the site but have indicated it could become the location of a signature campus entry building.
