So this idea was born out of those early realizations.” – Sever

Swoon’s new initiative to create a “a community based artisanal micro-factory” in a formerly abandoned church in North Braddock, Pennsylvania.” The first endeavor will be to produce 20,000 colored ceramic tiles by hand, which will be used for the new roof of the structure. You can help support Braddock Tiles by purchasing prints from a number of familiar artists here.
A new print by Shepard Fairey, available tomorrow (6/4) at a random time.
