About Bunker Projects:

Bunker Projects is a non-profit artist residency and experimental gallery located at 5106 Penn Ave in the Garfield neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Founded in 2013, founders Jessie Rommelt, Cecilia Ebitz and Abagail Beddall embarked on a year long restoration process on a formerly burnt out second and third floor apartment. Bunker Projects has since hosted 22 residencies and 35 exhibitions over the last 3 ½ years. Artists of all mediums and discourse are hosted for 3-4 month residencies alongside other art and cultural event series like Performance Art Festival and Talking with Your Mouth Full (a brunch-time speaker series with guest writers, journalists and storytellers). Bunker Projects is volunteer- and artist-run with an active working board of directors and is a 501c3 registered non-profit.
