Andy Prisbylla

United States


I’m an artist and documentarian who works in many multimedia platforms. Born and bred in Steubenville, Ohio, I witnessed the deindustrialization of the community and the effect it had on my friends and family. This experience informed much of my storytelling, which covers entropy and transformation in topics such as working class culture, community and art. My work has been featured in various magazines and websites, and I’ve exhibited in both public and digital formats. I am currently working on my long-term documentary project Citizens of Industry, which chronicles labor culture and folklore in the Rust Belt region. I reside in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania and am pursuing my master’s degree in library and information science at the University of Pittsburgh iSchool, with a focus on exhibitions and preservation. – Andy P.
