Sylvia was born in South Williamsburg and grew up visiting the Williamsburgh Library. She’s seen the neighborhood change, but it has always been her family’s home.
Now, Sylvia makes quilts in her Spaceworks studio on the second floor of the Williamsburgh Library. “This is home,” she says. “This is part of where we belong.”
Currently, Spaceworks has 5 locations in Brooklyn and Queens, and our newest site is opening in the Bronx. With your support, we can continue to build more stable, low cost spaces where local artists like Sylvia can make their work, close to where they live.
