3rd Ward

I like the idea of 3rd Ward, a kickass artist collective in Brooklyn. It’s D.I.Y. and collaboration at it’s best. I like the fact that it’s not just artists who can join; anybody can become a member and take classes, or for higher fees get space for a studio or office. How cool is that? Having worked within an artist’s collective, I can attest to what a creative atmosphere it can be and can only imagine the stimulating environment that is 3rd Ward. There’s a 3rd Ward magazine—it used to be the course catalog, but morphed into something much bigger with features and interviews. 3rd Ward even has a restaurant, in a trailer parked near one of its two locations: take-out only, but they have chairs and tables outside. And maybe the best thing about 3rd Ward? It's in the black, even turning a profit.
