WCT’s Incubator for the Arts

 

WCT’s Incubator for the ARTS is a place for creative collaboration with other artists.  Short-term 3-6 month artist leases are offered and include utilities, internet and 24-hour building access.  Spaces range from $100-$325/month.  While WCT’s main goal is to provide local artists with affordable studio space to create and establish themselves within the community, their future aim is to expand the space into a place that tenants can teach their art to the public.

WCT’s long term goal is to offer an artist residency program to include an annual showcase of their work at The Palace.  One pipeline project is to have local artists paint installations on one of the Trust’s buildings.  This will give exposure to Main Street’s pedestrians and drivers.  The Union Trust building is an ideal location for artists with The White Rabbit, Rabbit Hole Records, Connections Café, Sun Dawg Café, Caffe Barista, and Seton Hill’s Performing Arts Center all within walking distance.

 

For more information or to submit an application, please e-mail Kelli Brisbane at kelli@wctrust.net.

ART IN THE ALLEY

Westmoreland Cultural Trust and the Incubator for the Arts program are excited to announce the  interactive public art project “Art in the Alley.”  The initiative will include vibrant colors and original works by Incubator for the Arts local and student artists.  

Original culturally encompassing artwork will be installed on the alley side of the Union Trust Building facing The Palace Theatre’s S&T Bank Courtyard and include forced perspective markings and pop-up exhibits.  The idea began with the inception of the Trust’s incubator studios a year and a half ago; however, recent funding is just now turning this idea into a reality.  The goal is to install local art to create an additional destination spot in Greensburg, improve and enhance the artistic climate of the community, and add color to the local landscape in the growing downtown cultural district, all the while giving local incubator artists exposure and a potentially new audience for their work.

The art initiative is underway thanks to recent grant funding and city approval.  This funding is made possible by Second Chance Fund, Dominion Foundation, Greensburg Rotary – Madeline Nichols Memorial Fund and Westmoreland City Local Arts Grant Program – Park & Recreation.

Current “Art in the Alley” artists include Sean Blair (photographer), Carey Busatto (photographer), Moria Richardson (mixed-media/crylic paintings), Joyce Malis (photographer), Nick Silvis (mixed-media), Daisher Rocket (mixed-media), Savannah Butler (photographer), Timm Wherry (photographer).  For details on each artist and their work, please contact Kelli Brisbane at kelli@wctrust.net.

The initial phase of the project is underway – check back for photo updates or visit our facebook page!
