Nick Bauta is an artist and designer who crafts leather jewelry and clothes, urban furniture, and metal sculpture. He feels that in order for artists to prosper they cannot work in isolation- they need to connect with resources such as space, materials, and supplies. Most importantly, they need to connect with each other. These sentiments, combined with Nick’s interest in Jane Jacob’s idea of the commons and his personal experiences as an artist led him to co-found the Steel Yard with Clay Rockefeller in 2001. Nick has continued to create and nurture creative communities by founding Providence-based arts incubators and venues such as Firehouse 13, a gallery/live/work space, and Art Recreation Center. His latest venture is Fete, a restaurant/venue slated to open in late 2011.
