Powerhouse Arts is a not-for-profit organization committed to creative expression. Housed in a purpose-built facility designed by Herzog & de Meuron with executive architect PBDW in Gowanus, Brooklyn, it hosts art and fabrication professionals and educators who work together to co-create and share artistic practices vital to the wellbeing of artists and their respective communities.
The organization offers artists fee-based fabrication services in printmaking, ceramics, and large-scale public art; shared ceramics production space; and opportunities to deepen their practice through mentorship and resource sharing. Through an extended network of art and fabrication professionals, arts educators, and future tenants, Powerhouse functions as a collaborative hive of creative expression and production.
Since its founding in 2015, the not-for-profit has supported the fabrication of distinctive, technically advanced art projects for artists, non-profits, galleries, and institutions alike. Further detail on emblematic projects undertaken by Powerhouse Arts expert fabricators is available on the Featured Projects page of its website.
Starting in the summer of 2022, the organization united its operations under one roof, activating the new 170,000 square-foot Powerhouse Arts facility and fully relaunching its fabrication program as of August 1. Artists and commissioning entities are encouraged to submit project inquiries online.
In the fall of 2022, Powerhouse will debut programs for ceramics membership, community engagement, and mission-driven tenant and events rentals. Beyond the fabrication shops, facilities for staging and assembly are also critical functions of the building.
Project inquiries may be submitted via this intake form.
