Berkeley evicts yet another art collective; this time it's the Shipyard

The Shipyard Collective was a unique collaborative build space in Berkeley, Ca for Mechanical, electronic and Kinetic Art. Berkeley however, has given the art collective the boot for "living" in the shipping containers that serve as art space.

After a LET THEM EAT CONDOS decree, the Shipyard has only a few days to move a million pounds of shipping debris, metal, steel etc. Word has it that they are moving to Oakland but no details yet. The heart of Berkeley's art community has long since been destroyed by lack of affordable housing and art space.

Good-luck to the Shipyard in their relocation efforts.
