Doug Mirams's curator insight, January 4, 2014 12:29 PM

The Art Lending Collection is a collaborative partnership between the Braddock Carnegie Library (PA), the Carnegie International and the local artist collaborative Transformazium. This project lets clients borrow from more than 100 pieces of art. Dana Bishop-Root, a member of the Transformazim is quoted in the article, 

“It's been super humbling to see how it's been used by the neighborhood"; and, “Art is a way of people engaging with the world. It's about the relationship between the artwork and the artist and the world and back.”

This is the another partnered project between Braddock Carnegie Library and Transformazim, as they also run the Neighborhood Print Shop, "where locals learn to make prints for creative or entrepreneurial purposes, as well as an artist-in-residence program."
