In North Braddock, Swoon and members of the Transformazium artist collective are working with the local community to transform an early-20th-century church that was set to be demolished into an arts-focused community hub. They know that the project won’t be easy but Swoon is committed to making it happen.
North Braddock, like many other midwestern communities, was devastated when local factories and steel mills closed and jobs disappeared without any new ones to replace them. Swoon’s new project, which is a work in progress, will revitalize a building that has long stood neglected at the heart of the community.
