AS220 Media Arts is hosting its fundraiser and celebrating the 20th Birthday of The Paul Krot Community Darkroom, one of AS220’s publicly accessible art-making facilities, led by our growing community of local artists.

Get up close and personal with photographers Huascar Robles, Miguel Rosario, and Mary Beth Meehan and hear the inside story about their documentary work. Huascar captured a critical moment in Haiti with a journalistic eye, while Miguel documented the daily life of people in his native country, the Dominican Republic. Mary Beth’s photo installation “City of Champions” invited viewers to consider the changing urban identities of Brockton, MA, a post-industrial American city, within the context of its historic urban landscape. Please join us! for conversation and cocktails preceding the panel discussion, “From the Edge: Documentary Photography Now” Date: Wednesday, April 16 Time: 5:30 – 7:00pm Place: Aurora 276  Westminster St.  Tickets: $100 each $150 for two. Buy Tickets Here.


Since August 1994, when the Paul Krot Darkroom was established at 115 Empire Street, AS220’s photography programs have grown to embrace both digital and traditional B&W photography, added studio lighting, and camera rentals, as well as resources for photo finishing, digital editing and large-format printing.  We introduced educational offerings to support the use of these new resources. In 2012, we began to expand the photography program into a Media Arts program supporting complementary analog and digital mediums such as film, video, audio, and computer/web applications.  AS220 currently provides affordable access to graphics software at the Media Arts Lab, and is planning a gradual expansion into new media as resources allow.
