Give your mind a break or work it overtime with this series of pieces from a most hands-on artist that knows how to work a sheet of metal. Anthony Howe’s kinetic wind sculptures are an exciting attraction around the world as well as in WA state where the artist lives and exhibits his work. The Creators Project visited with Howe recently and produced the video below. You can also find videos of Howe’s work on his YouTube channel.
CSA+D in Brooklyn, NY, is an art studio that allows community-members to buy shares in the art pieces that its creatives produce.
The studio gathered a collective of artists for its Fall 2013 season. Those wanting to support the painters, photographers, jewelry-makers and sculptors chose to purchase a share at $250 or $500. The monies enable the group to continue developing their work and investors receive 3 to 6 pieces, depending on their share.
CSA+D helps artists receive funding from their community in exchange for the work they make.

Chiyome designs sexy, minimalist bags made of butter-smooth leather. The product line exists to support the wearer in her own aesthetic through simplicity, quality and purpose. And in the way of purpose, those slim and uncomplicated products are set apart through Chiyome’s agenda to “re-imagine a more socially-conscious role for business within the fashion industry”.
Anna Lynett Moss launched Chiyome in 2012 and her most recent undertaking began by creating work for sex trafficking survivors. These new creative partners aren’t receiving handouts but a resourceful conduit for recovery through work. It is impressive work, wouldn’t you agree?

During work hours he makes art. In his spare time… he makes art.
