Silk City Artists and Musicians

This 2017 documentary portrays the thriving arts community in the city of Paterson. Bucky Pizzarelli, legendary guitarist, and Federico Castelluccio, a visual artist and actor best known for his role as Furio on The Sopranos, are among the artists and musicians who discuss the influence of Paterson on their work.

Paterson’s Essex and Phoenix Mills, buildings that are designated for 70 percent artist and musician housing, and the Art Factory, a 22-building factory complex serving as the city’s creative arts center, are featured in the film. Former Paterson Mayors Lawrence “Pat” Kramer and Congressman William Pascrell, Jr., who were instrumental in securing these artistically dedicated facilities, comment on the role of artists and arts for Paterson.
