Bain Project

From the BAIN Project’s website:

The Bain Project opened the doors of Raleigh’s historic E. B. Bain Waterworks to the public in May 2009. Over 2000 visitors explored the building and the collaborative site-specific installations and performance art created by The Bain Project artists (see artists listed below). Tucked away just south of downtown Raleigh, the E. B. Bain Waterworks possesses what has been called one of the finest interior spaces in Raleigh. The facilities were phased out and closed in the late eighties.

Process:
For nine months (August 2008 – April 2009), twelve local artists explored the site and history of this architectural gem. The artists’ experiences and discussions of Bain’s life and legacy are embodied in works of art throughout the building’s interior and exterior.
