Link to Salvage/Salvation Overview
The most recent version of Salvage/Salvation, Salvage/Salvation Part 5: ARISE, was presented May-June, 2007 at the abandoned United Brethren in Christ Church in Braddock, PA (on the outskirts of Pittsburgh). The planning process began in October, 2006 through a residency at the Society for Cultural Exchange. The residency was extended to a session in February, 2007, and the working time in the Church, May-June 2007. During the six weeks of residency in the church, 8 artists ranging in age from 20 to 52, local kids, and a variety of volunteers cleaned up the church, created art, shot a movie, and generated buzz and discussion about the neighborhood of Braddock and the ideas of re-use.
