Hi there! Here is a chat with the ladies of Bunker Projects for your listening pleasure! Jesse and Ceci were on hand to discuss the mission of Bunker Projects:
"BUNKER Projects is a residency program and experimental gallery devoted to creating a living laboratory for artists in Pittsburgh. Located at 5106 Penn Avenue's second and third floor, BUNKER Projects is converting a burnt-out apartment into a customized space for artists of all kinds. Participating artists will spend an intensive period living and working on site with living, studio, and gallery spaces. BUNKER residents will be supported to exchange and collaborate with the surrounding neighborhood and take advantage of other Pittsburgh artist resources during their stay."
These ladies are devoted to creating an amazing space for artists to build great things. We chatted in their construction zone—where we saw artists actively creating work amidst the dust. That’s what’s up.
Enjoy this chat an I hope to see you at a few of the cool things going on at Bunker Projects this month including...
March 7: unblurred- Bizarre style show with works on view and for sale by all three current residents Dana Harper, Gabe Kenney and Sam Berner.
