Hot Wood Arts Center

481 Van Brunt Street
Brooklyn, NY 11231

Hot Wood Arts Center is an artists collective that provides affordable work space, exhibition opportunities, and creative support to working members of the arts community in Brooklyn. By bringing creative people together from the typically disparate fields of the visual and performing arts and providing them a quality space in which to work together, Hot Wood hopes to encourage collaboration, inspiration, and friendship in an urban environment that typically promotes competition and isolation.

The Center is a 7,000-square-foot space inside the Civil-War-era Beard Street Warehouse building in Red Hook, Brooklyn. It contains 16 visual artist work spaces, a recording studio, a shared work area with tools and other equipment, an art gallery, and a stage for performances. One-year leases are granted to 15 artist tenants, who are known as the facility's “residents” and receive, in addition to 24 hour access to their work spaces, a number of other benefits including free wi-fi, electricity, use of common areas and tools, permanent links to their personal websites from the Hot Wood Arts website, and constant exposure to viewers.
