Breadboard is launching a dynamic public art residency program called Art Along the Avenue of Technology (AAAT), to explore the intersection of Art and Technology along the corridor of Market Street west of 30th Street, which in 1998 was designated as the Avenue of Technology. Art Along the Avenue of Technology will engage a diverse range of community groups in the Greater Philadelphia region around an innovative artist residency program that will explore contemporary themes of public space, place-making and technology in an urban environment.

The Artist Residency will create innovative approaches to community engagement, activism and education through diverse applications of 21st century creative technologies while activating the Science Center’s campus along a five-block stretch of Market Street Corridor as a ‘project zone’ for community engagement and place-making activities. Through Art Along the Avenue of Technology, Breadboard will host one artist/collective in 2014.
