Giving Artists (and Buildings) New Life

Amy Bagwell and Amy Herman from Goodyear Arts

Most people would see an old, abandoned building as an eyesore. Amy Bagwell and Amy Herman saw it as an opportunity. In the months before the building was torn down, the two found dozens of artists to display their work, helping launch what is now Goodyear Arts, a nonprofit that gives artists a space to work by taking over underused buildings and breathing new life into them.
