About

Powerhouse Arts is a not-for-profit based in Gowanus and Red Hook, Brooklyn, established to create a robust platform for art production and employment in the arts.

We are stewarding the redevelopment of the former Brooklyn Rapid Transit Power Station in Gowanus to create a new facility that will house fabrication and production facilities in wood, metal, ceramic, textile and print.

In addition to fabrication, we provide total project management support for artists and institutions looking to produce ambitious projects.

Our programming includes fabrication, education, employment and public engagement to increase access and opportunity for participation in the arts for all New Yorkers.
