Renewed Urban Studio Tent (RUST)
I was walking around South Broad Street the other day and came across this empty lot with some odd hut structure. Upon closer review, I noticed the beauty of this 'hut' and took a bunch of pictures to share here on my blog. This project really gives a new perspective of turning trash into treasure. To learn more about this, read below and check out this video on their Kickstarter page (where they raised over $3,500 to create this piece of art!
In the summer of 2012 Andy Walker and Andy Heisey intended to build an oblong structure (20’ wide, 8’ deep and 10’ high) using various recycled materials such as wood, newspaper, slag cement, and glass bottles. The project is intended to be participatory during the building process and afterwards as a working studio for artists in the surrounding schools and area. There will be a show of work completed in this space. The whole process will be documented on film.
