4 artists //// 3 cities /// common threads
Join local Artist Collective, Autus, to celebrate an exhibition of contemporary art created by Artists working in Mill Cities across the Northeastern US. The exhibition will be on view at Engine, in Biddeford, Dec. 2nd through Jan. 21st.
Through the lens of 4 artists, the artist collective Autus takes a look at contemporary art currently being produced in mill cities across the northeastern US. Historically, these cities were all home to textile producing mills. Built on the rivers of these cities, the textile mills helped shape the economic and physical landscape of each city. Today these mills are being transformed by artists and artisans seeking space to create work in. How will the influx of artists shape the future of these cities?
