About Pioneer Works

About Pioneer Works

Pioneer Works provides visual and performing artists, musicians, scientists, technologists, community organizers, and educators the resources and platform they need to expand their practices. Over the past decade, we have transformed our red brick building built in 1866 into an environment that fosters limitless creativity through three floors of interconnected studio, performance, exhibition, and multipurpose spaces.

We encourage lifelong learning through community-based workshops, continuing education classes, and K-12 STEAM programs. Our approach empowers curious minds across diverse communities, knowledge bases, and frames of reference in pursuit of accelerating culture through an open exchange of ideas and information.

Pioneer Works was imagined by its Founder, Dustin Yellin, as a place in which artists, scientists, and thinkers from various backgrounds converge and work together in real-time, a “museum of process”.
