ArtsWeek 2018: GoggleWorks Center for the Arts

GoggleWorks
July 16 - 20, 2018


The GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is a premiere community art and cultural resource center for Berks County as well as central and southeastern Pennsylvania. GoggleWorks is the largest, most comprehensive interactive arts center of its kind in the country.

The GoggleWorks Center for the Arts is a prime example of adaptive reuse in architecture and derives its name from the original structure from which it evolved. A former goggle factory, GoggleWorks is an industrial complex of six buildings transformed into four galleries, dance and music studios, classrooms, a wood shop, a photography classroom with darkroom, a glassblowing facility, and both ceramics and jewelry studios. The space also holds a 130-seat film theater, café, gift shop and offices for 26 community arts organizations. The factory’s groundbreaking innovations made it a leader in the safety industry for over a century. Now the buildings are a hub of activity, maintaining local historical and architectural integrity while inspiring a cultural and economic resurgence as the community and visitors come together to create, appreciate and celebrate the arts.

ArtsWeek 2018: UArts

The University of the Arts
July 23 - 27, 2018

At the University of the Arts, creativity in all its forms overlaps and converges. UArts is the first and only university in the United States solely dedicated to educating creative individuals in the visual, performing and communication arts. We believe in the creative process as a transformative force for society.

Our campus in Center City Philadelphia stretches for six blocks along the Avenue of the Arts from Walnut Street to South Street. Philadelphia is overflowing with stories to tell, scenes to capture, people to meet, museums to explore, restaurants to sample and performances to ponder. This city offers a distinctive blend of old and new. Broad Street gives way to narrow alleys and large boulevards. History, technology, and artistic creativity mingle on city corners. Philadelphia is home to an astounding collection of museums, artistic venues and historical attractions. These include the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the Fabric Workshop and Museum, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, the Mütter Museum, and the National Constitution Center.

UArts Continuing Education Digital Photography Program welcomes guest speaker Keith Yahrling

Keith will discuss his two most recent bodies of work, What Was Lost At Fort Sill (2016-ongoing) and For the Revolution (2012-2015). Both bodies of work explore the psyche of the American landscape and examine how he interjects with the history of the places he photographs.
 
Join us to learn about Keith's process, what it is like to work on long term personal projects, and a small segment of American history.
 
This event is free and open to the public.
