RUST

The latest art installation of Andrew Heisey, assistant professor of art at Waynesburg University, is displayed at 313 S. Broad Street in center city Philadelphia, in a lot owned by The University of the Arts. 

Heisey and Andrew Walker, a painter, photographer and teacher at Perelman Jewish Day School in Wynnewood, Pa., partnered to design the art installation, the Renewed Urban Studio Tent (RUST), which is constructed of recycled and abandoned materials and serves as a temporary artist studio. The structure of RUST was inspired by wigwams, which are domed dwellings used by certain Native American tribes.

“Our goal is to challenge the way buildings are made and to draw awareness to the need to revitalize the urban environment,” Heisey said. “So many places within the city are left rusting away and abandoned. These are places that breed crime and pollution. In the right hands, some of these places could be rebuilt into new and special places for art and/or cultural centers.” 

Throughout the month of August, artists are scheduled to work within RUST, making art dealing with ideas of urban renewal. The work of these artists and parts of RUST will be recycled into a show at the Mount Airy Art Garage in Philadelphia November 10.

Heisey has exhibited work throughout Philadelphia and Pennsylvania. His sculptures have been featured at the State Museum of Pennsylvania, on the cover of Messiah College Magazine, at Elizabethtown College art galleries, at Bloomsburg University's Haas Gallery, The Rosenwald-Wolf Gallery and several other galleries in Philadelphia.

Prior to joining Waynesburg University, Heisey served as a high school art teacher at Harrisburg Christian School in Harrisburg, Pa., and adjunct professor of art at Messiah College in Grantham, Pa. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in ceramics from The University of the Arts, a Master of Arts from Bloomsburg University and a Bachelor of Arts degree from Messiah College.
