Jacques Terzian was a sculptor with the vision of creating spaces specifically for artists. In the early 1970s, Terzian, among many other artists, was forced out of a warehouse space to make way for Levi’s Plaza. Terzian knew he needed to do something, so he went yo the old Hunter’s Point Shipyard, which was being decommissioned by the U.S. Navy. Terzian got a sublease on the barracks and remodeled it into an artist colony named The Point. The Point opened in 1984, and today is considered the largest artist colony operating in the United States, housing 250 artists in residence. Terzian died August 6, 2016, at the age of 94.
