Philadelphia Traction Company is a collaborative workspace and art center in West Philadelphia. The cooperative studio is the result of the collective ambition of six professional sculptors, all graduates of the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts of various years. Once the site of a famous trolley manufacturing company established in the late 1800’s, this historic building is a gargantuan facility with 40’ ceilings that provides the kind of space it takes to work large.
Founded in May 2007, Philadelphia Traction Company is currently a hub for the diverse work of its founders, representing a wide scope of form, expression, and technique. In the near future, Philadelphia Traction Company will provide gallery space and private studio opportunities.
