MADE @ the Foundry
This art exhibition stems from a collaborative partnership between MADE Makerspace, located in the Delmar Maker District, and the Foundry Art Centre. Featuring Makers, Artists, Designers, and Entrepreneurs, this exhibition examines the unique interconnections between these creative disciplines. Works made by MADE members and studio artists, along with tools, technology, and other supplies will be on display. MADE at the Foundry places a strong emphasis on the importance of interactivity, innovation, and community engagement within the creative economy.
“We are very excited to be partnering with the Foundry on this unique exhibition. Both our spaces support the St. Louis [area] community of makers, artists, designers, and entrepreneurs, and we both provide resources for similar people in different spaces. Unifying our communities through innovative collaborations such as MADE at the Foundry inspires new connections for all our makers.” says Emily Elhoffer, MADE Member Director. “Our community ranges from practicing artists to novice furniture makers, retired sewing instructors to freelance jewelry designers, and so much more. We have over 200 active members using our shop, and our second floor hosts studio space for artists and inventors.”
“This collaborative partnership just made sense.” Explains Sean FitzGibbons, Foundry Art Centre’s Executive Director. “The Foundry’s focus is to champion our region’s art community and we see that same focus at MADE. We are thrilled to see MADE at the Foundry as the first project in a continuing partnership. This inventive exhibition is a fantastic way to showcase the close relationships between art, craft, and technology.”
