“A twist on the traditional artist’s print, each print available through Braddock Tiles is a crafted collaboration between Braddock Tile factory and an individual artist. Braddock Tiles, producer of beautifully crafted artisanal art objects such as these limited runprints, embosses and hand inscribes the edition number on the front with the artist’s name on the back.”  ~ braddocktiles.org

Living in a rustbelt city, I get excited when projects like this appear on my radar. There is no perfect storm for economic development in cities like Toledo Ohio or Braddock PA, but it is clear to me that the arts are no question going to be a big part of any solution to our hard times.

I look forward to hearing more updates about the Braddock Tile project… with the backing of SWOON it’s bound for success… financially? Who knows? Culturally? No question about it.
