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.

Our shops are currently preparing to move into our future facility. In preparation for the move, production will be paused from January 1st to July 1st. We understand that this hiatus may disrupt existing project timelines, so we encourage you to get in any project inquiries as soon as possible if you’d like to have work fabricated before the end of the year. Complete the Project Inquiry form here.
MATERIALS Powerhouse Arts offers fabrication for artists and institutions looking to produce ambitious art projects through our Collaborative Production Program. We specialize in five key materials and offer project management to support artists with the full life cycle of their project needs. Our facilities are structured to optimize collaboration across materials for multimedia projects. Explore Materials
