Brandywine Workshop and Archives

Over the years, the mission of the Brandywine Workshop and Archives has evolved, as evidenced in its growing permanent collection of works of art, public programs, Visiting Artist residencies, one-person and group exhibitions—many of which have traveled nationally and internationally—artist exchanges, a national network of 19 Satellite Collections presenting prints made at BWA, and the successful launch and ongoing growth of Artura.org, a free online resource for visual-arts-based cross-cultural and cross-curricular learning.

Art Start uses the creative process to nurture the voices, hearts, and minds of historically marginalized youth, offering a space for them to imagine, believe, and represent their creative vision for their lives and communities.

Through consistent workshops with long-term partners,  including youth organizations, schools, alternative sentencing programs, and residences for youth and families experiencing homelessness, art becomes the starting point of a larger life process, and the start of larger conversations about the future of our communities.

The Laundromat Project

The Laundromat Project advances artists and neighbors as change agents in their own communities.

We envision a world in which artists and neighbors in communities of color work together to unleash the power of creativity to transform lives.

We make sustained investments in growing a community of multiracial, multigenerational, and multidisciplinary artists and neighbors committed to societal change by supporting their artmaking, community building, and leadership development.
