2015 Grant Recipients – Forecast Public Art

Seven artists have been awarded 2015 Grants from Forecast Public Art for mid-career and emerging artists.

Seitu Jones got the largest grant – $50 thousand dollars for a project to develop “a floating platform for artistic and scientific experiences with the overall goal of using art and ecology to foster a greater understanding of the Mississippi River watershed and the public’s role as environmental stewards”.    

A conceptual drawing of the  “Art Ark” is pictured above.

Assignment:  Interview Seitu Jones and/or some of the other artists about their plans and the importance of these grants.
