AS220 Media Arts

Since August 1994, when the Paul Krot Darkroom was established at 115 Empire Street, AS220’s photography programs have grown to embrace both digital and traditional B&W photography, added studio lighting and camera rentals, as well as resources for photo finishing, digital editing and large-format printing, and broadened AS220’s educational offerings with a host of new workshops. In March 2012, AS220 announced that it would further expand its photography programs to create a home for creative work in complementary analog and digital mediums such as: film, video, computer/internet applications, and audio. In addition to the resources offered at AS220 Media Arts, located alongside AS220 Labs and the Community Printshop at the Mercantile Block, artists can access the solo and group facilities of the Paul Krot Community Darkroom, the only public-access professional B&W darkroom in Rhode Island.

About AS220
AS220 was founded in 1985 on the principle that freedom of expression is crucial for the development of strong communities and individual spirits. AS220's vision for a local unjuried and uncensored forum for the arts was launched in a one-room rental above the Providence Performing Arts Center with a budget of just $800. Today, the non-profit owns - and enlivens - three mixed-use buildings, totaling over 100,000 square feet, in the heart of Providence's downtown. Though sizable, AS220 is bursting at the seams with: four rotating gallery spaces, a performance space, a youth program, a recording studio, a print shop, a darkroom and media arts lab, a high-tech fabrication and electronics lab, a black-box theatre, a dance studio, four dozen affordable live/work studios, an AS220 owned and operated bar and restaurant, plus a handful of locally-grown non-profit and commercial tenants. AS220's facilities and services are available to any artist who needs a place to exhibit, perform, or create original work and its classes and public-access studios are among the most affordable in the nation. Each year, AS220 serves over 1,000 artists, reaching an audience 50,000 strong - and growing.
