Facilities And Equipment

The studio is located in Utica New York, close to downtown, in proximity to light industry and various fabrication shops. The collaborative environment of the studio and the communal aspects of the residence help foster dialogue, exchange of ideas, creative experimentation and both personal and professional connections. The 5,500 square foot facility consists of 3,800 square feet of open studio space and six enclosed semi-private studios. The studio is outfitted with concrete floors, a two ton system of traveling hoists, and extra wide overhead doors. Both studio and house provide wireless access and artists may borrow available digital equipment. The ¾ acres of land surrounding the building can supplement indoor studio space during certain times of the year. An outdoor work pad is equipped with a 50' monorail hoist. Artists should bring their own goggles, hand-tools and specialized equipment.
