Lucia Rollow is the founder/executive director of Bushwick Community Darkroom www.bushwickcommunitydarkroom.com a thriving 3,000-square-foot warehouse in the heart of Brooklyn serving hundreds of customers each month. BCD offers 24/7 access to darkrooms, as well as color and black-and-white film processing, education programs, and gallery shows.
Lucia also was one of the main organizers for Bushwick Open Studios a huge weekend long event that used to kick off summer for all of us Bushwick residents where we would all welcome the greater New York art world, and the greater world in general to our thriving artistic community.
I personally got to know Lucia during my Potion Collective days, she was a key player in me being able to pull off a block party, (which I would love to do again, maybe next summer, you're hearing it here first, people. Next summer, Bushwick Variety Show may throw a block party. I happen to know a Darkroom owner, some bar owners, and a record label all on this said block... I'm getting carried away with these show notes, but thinking about the work I've done with Lucia inspires me, so I hope this episode inspires you!
