LOCUS is a green creative commons where art, ecology, and community meet. We offer a space in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh in which to explore, imagine and transform our relationship to the living beings and systems populating planet earth. LOCUS is open to creative practitioners of all disciplines in the belief that through collective engagement, sustainable solutions will emerge.
LOCUS is dedicated to my late partner, Stephen Moore. Stephen was a conceptual artist who had a passion for directing experimental gallery spaces. LOCUS was a storefront space he initiated in Los Angeles in the early 1980s. Stephen shaped who I am as an artist. I claimed LOCUS as my own to honor and thank Stephen for sharing his vision of art with me and for gifting me with the wonderful space in the Bloomfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh that I now share with you.
