The Boiler

We believe in providing equitable access to exhibit space, creative resources, and mentorship. Our aim includes promoting diversity within contemporary art and community arts programming. The Boiler is a space dedicated to supporting artists who share in our vision. We believe creating a hub for community engagement within the arts is essential. The Boiler is committed to nurturing emerging artists while continuously celebrating established Artists. Our ongoing Art Education program “Steam Works” In partnership with ELM Foundation, exemplifies our “Arts Community Empowering Community Arts” endeavor by providing students the opportunity to learn directly from each exhibiting artist. We hope to inspire the next generation of artists and creatives through free workshops and classes that focus on the specialty, media, or discipline of the current Boiler Artist’s works. With each unique experience, we strive to promote the transformative power of art.

The Boiler plays host to a variety of events. We selectively partner with local businesses, institutions, schools, musicians, and brands that share our values. All activities held in The Boiler, go to fund programming for the kids of ELM Foundation. The Boiler space, when activated by creative communities, gathers a special kind of steam, empowerment.

HISTORY

The Boiler, a historic industrial space in the heart of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, was transformed into a gallery and site of a burgeoning art scene with the efforts of Joe Amrhein of Pierogi Gallery in the early 2000s The vision of the space was to push the boundaries of what a white box gallery could be. The Boiler quickly became known as a space for artists who wanted to push the boundaries of fine art.

 

The Boiler, while no longer affiliated with Pierogi Gallery, continues to preserve the legacy with its non-profit initiatives and pushes forward; utilizing the space for cutting-edge contemporary art while integrating and expanding its programming on a larger scale and promoting arts education in the community.
