Artists Join In Building a New Kind of Community in Braddock, PA

There is a rumor going around the arts community that the Mayor of Braddock, who himself lives in a warehouse space, will give free studio workspace to professional artists to bring them to his decaying town. Braddock, Pennsylvania may be the poorest, most rundown urban area in the United States, where you can buy an empty house–and there are plenty to choose from–for less than five thousand dollars. Braddock sits on a river’s edge and is about a twenty-minute highway drive from Pittsburgh.

I sent the mayor an email just yesterday, requesting details on opportunities for artists, and will post a follow-up here when I learn more.

Some Braddock projects:

Major public art projects and a Community Center.

The historic and first Carnegie Library in Braddock has a screen print shop program and Braddock ceramic studio program with a unique water filter project.

The Unsmoke Art Space in Braddock is an exhibition space with related projects, including independent Small Press publishing venture Braddock Avenue Books.

Braddock Redux, a project  to mobilize like-minded people of all ages from both within and outside the community for the betterment of the Braddock through training opportunities, art initiatives, green initiatives, employment opportunities, the creative re-use of existing structures, and through the flexibility to respond to other opportunities that arise. http://braddockredux.org/

Into the Furnace a writer-in-residence program in Braddock, PA. Into the Furnace offers an adventuresome creative person, whose work and work ethic can benefit from the energy Braddock has to offer, up to 9 months of creative work time at their urban residency. http://intothefurnace.wordpress.com/.

Unsmoke provides space for the local office of the Berkeley-based company Bibliopolis. Bibliopolis provides complete e-commerce website development, technical support, and hosting as well as database services for the used, out-of-print and antiquarian bookseller.

Next door to Unsmoke sits the Roadbourne custom furniture design warehouse where craftsmen and women work from reclaimed wood and other materials.

New Guild Studio in Braddock specializes in restoring and reimagining liturgical art. Check out what they do at www.newguildstudio.com

Braddock Farms grows organic produce on 10 acres of reclaimed urban land, supplying herbs and vegetables to regional restaurants.

Fossil Free Fuels has made and fueled biodiesel since 2005 for those who want your fuel from a deep fryer instead of deep in the Earth.

Paris / NYC Artist Studios Database Accepting Submissions

ARTISTS STUDIOS is an online database of the strongest non-represented art in the New York City greater metropolitan area–and, now, Paris. The Artists Studios online database of non-represented art seeks to create an online space in which one can view art that is less accessible than art created by represented artists.

Artist Studios is currently accepting online submissions from artists who wish to be included in the AS | ARTISTS STUDIOS database.

Artists are selected primarily on the basis of their artwork. AS/Artist Studios expects artists to be committed and have a body of completed work. However, they do not require formal training nor education.

To be considered, all applicants must be 1. located in New York City and the greater metropolitan region; 2. not represented by any New York City gallery, and; 3. not enrolled in an academic program. Artists in residency programs may apply.
