VCCA (Virginia Center for the Creative Arts) is one of the largest artists' communities in the nation. Tucked into the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, VCCA has awarded fellowships to thousands of our best national and international writers, composers and visual artists. This blog tells their story—their achievements and the work they are doing in your area and around the world. VCCA news is here, too: events, fellowships, opportunities.
VCCA. Because creative space is a creative edge.

Art You Can Live In: Craig Pleasants on Kickstarter
Architectural sculptor and VCCA Program Director Craig Pleasants has his eco-friendly Octagonal Living Unit (OLU) on Kickstarter. The OLU is a 400-square-foot, do-it-yourself kit house that can be a studio, guest house, vacation cabin - or emergency housing.
Quick to assemble, OLU is designed to be energy-efficient, strong, lightweight, safe - and affordable.
