We attended the 6th Annual Paterson Art Walk this past Saturday and were struck but not only the awesome artists and their work but by the location as well. The older factories along Spruce Street made a wonderful juxtaposition between the new art the artists were showing and the 19th century factories. While walking around the incredible buildings one could almost hear the machines running, the chatter of the workers and wheels and cogs turning. It was an amazing experience.
The Art Factory is located at 70 Spruce Street and is a massive art center that offers studio and space rentals to artists at all levels of their careers. According to the Art Factory Facebook page they have adapted 400,000 square feet of the industrial complex. If you are a fan of the arts it really is an amazing place that you should visit. If you’re an artist looking for space, you should definitely check them out! We can’t wait for another opportunity to visit.
