About NEST Arts Factory

The NEST Arts Factory is a community of artists and musicians working in a wide variety of media in a re-imagined factory building on the west side of Bridgeport, Connecticut. Built at the beginning of the last century during Bridgeport’s heyday as the premier manufacturing center of the United States as a factory to construct automobile and limousine bodies, the building that currently houses the NEST Arts Factory has been over its long history an industrial scale factory, a jewelry manufacturer, an aerosol can factory, a manufacturer of artillery detonators during WWII, and most recently a sock factory before becoming the vibrant and di-verse artist community that it is today.

In addition to participating in the annual Bridgeport Art Trail, the nearly 40 artists and musicians of the NEST Arts Factory host Open Studios events for the public seven times per year in March, April, May, Septem-ber October, November, and December. NEST artists work in a wide variety of media from painting, drawing, and sculpture to printmaking, ceramics, fiber, and jewelry, and are delighted to share their work and explain their inspiration and processes. NEST musicians play in an array of genres including classic baroque, acoustic folk, latin, alternative rock, and reggae.

Located in the heart of the NEST, the NEST Arts Factory Gallery hosts 6 art exhibitions a year, a mix of invitational and juried exhibits, showcasing national, regional, and local established and emerging artists. Open space within the NEST allows both performing and visual artists to share their work with the community. The NEST Arts Factory offers sever-al communal spaces ideal for art workshops, music release parties, art events, and more. Ample onsite and street parking is available for all events.
