Goodyear Arts is a program that sets up shop in underused buildings and offers artists residencies for two months. In addition to the studio space, the artists are paid a stipend. The artists’ work often extends to alteration of the building itself.
At the end of the residencies, Goodyear Arts hosts a celebration where the public can see the artists’ work. In addition, the events often include music and dance.
Goodyear Arts is at Camp North End. The official address of Goodyear Arts is 1720 Statesville Avenue, but you’d do just as well plugging 1824 Statesville Avenue, Camp North End’s address, into your phone. The best place to park is “The Mount” parking lot. Just follow the signs.
Goodyear Arts hosts other art and music events as well.

This is Goodyear Arts’ first drive-thru arts experience.From the safety of their cars, guests will be invited to cruise through art activations and experiences designed by local artists from the Goodyear Arts Collective.
Cars will be directed through the sprawling 76-acre campus of Camp North End, the current home of Goodyear Arts. Site-specific works from performers and visual artists will emerge from hidden corners, bay doors, and be projected onto the massive walls of the creative re-use warehouses.
The audience will be guided through the pre-set path with the help of an audio experience presented via their smartphones. All guests will be asked to remain in their cars during the art experience which will span about one hour.
Participating artists include:
- JM Askew and Casey Malone
- Amy Bagwell
- Renee Cloud
- de’Angelo Dia
- Ghost Trees
- Eric Mullis and Joy Davis
- Matt Steele and Ben Geller
