Developed as an evolution of a family real estate business, Street Road Artists Space sponsors exhibitions and projects that relate directly to the problematic, capital-driven activity which produced its possibility. Challenges to received wisdom on property and ownership, and how this relates to social spaces and relationships, are the focus.
Our building is a renovated 1930s cottage, previously slated for demolition, and restored ably by local builder Tom Savage. We're located at the crossroads of the Gap Newport Pike and Street Road (Routes 41 and 926), in an area that lies between rural farmland, Amish country, horse country, land preservation efforts, towns impoverished by big-box proliferation, and encroaching suburbanization growing out from the cities of Philadelphia, Wilmington and Lancaster.
