Cloud Coffee is an artist-owned mobile coffee system which aims to facilitate artistic practices and caffeinate Philadelphia.
As graduate students at Tyler School of Art, Matthew Craig and I recognized a need for delicious coffee in close proximity to our scholarly pursuits. In 2012, we teamed up to solve this and one other little-known conundrum: artists need money. In light of this reality, we vowed not only to deliver fine brew to Temple's campus, but also to channel our entrepreneurial efforts into endeavors supporting artistic growth in Philadelphia and beyond. Cloud supports artists through advice giving, exhibition advertising and The Cloud Prize, an annual juried monetary award.
