Phil Campbell Redux


1 comment

Phil Campbell is one of this city's most irrepressible arts entrepreneurs. For the better part of the past 20 years, Campbell has been the force that's propelled some the local scene's most influential developments. He was the straw that stirred the drink at the Faris Building and, when that landmark was sold to Lilly, he went on to found the Murphy Arts Center in Fountain Square.

A series of personal reversals of fortune caused Campbell to withdraw from the scene for a needed hiatus. But now he's back with a new project in connection with developer Chris Piazza's Indy Indie Artist Colony, a 72 unit apartment building at 26 E. 14th St. that is being touted as the largest artist community in the state. Live/work spaces, including stained/sealed floors, city views, kitchens, bathrooms, and high speed internet access start at $395 per month. Long term and temporary studio spaces are also available. That's where Campbell comes in.

Campbell will be opening a gallery on the ground floor that will feature work by resident and visiting artists. The gallery will hold its first opening in connection with First Friday on December 3.
