RAiL - Reading Arts in Local - Motion
There may no longer be a Reading Railroad, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a train that “ties” our past to our future. We want to bring the train back to Reading for a very special reason. All too often, segments of the Greater Reading Pennsylvania community feel alienated from the arts. To some of our neighbors, art is inaccessible. We’d like to change that! Reading Arts In Local-motion, or RAiL, is a project that will bring the arts to the community — literally and figuratively. The vision is to develop a new “Reading Railroad,” that showcases art in a variety of forms and travels around Greater Reading and Berks County. Launched in three phases, RAiL is a transmedia arts project that will provide canvas, location, and audience to Reading area artists in multiple disciplines.
