Born in California in 1975 and raised in Colorado, Dustin Yellin now lives in Brooklyn, New York. In 2010, he founded Pioneer Works, a social sculpture and non-profit institute for art and innovation in Red Hook. The capacious site is a venue for conceptual and creative cross-pollination, a quarter where resident artists and thinkers from diverse disciplines can interact without normative restrictions, ideally producing social change through innovative work.
