A cross-country billboard project conceived and initiated by artist Zoe Crosher in collaboration with other artists including Eve Fowler, Bobbi Woods, and Mario Ybarra Jr. The billboards will be thematically linked and activated through various events and social media outlets for dialogue and interaction among varied audiences.
Each $25,000-$150,000 grant will enable cultural organizations to support fearless innovation and cross-disciplinary collaboration by diverse artists.
The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation is pleased to announce the recipients of its Artistic Innovation and Collaboration [AIC] grants, a program that advances the values promoted by artist and activist Robert Rauschenberg during his lifetime and career. These grants propel the Foundation’s philanthropic mission of cultivating, promoting, encouraging, and supporting the production and exhibition of art.
“This is our second year offering grants rooted in the characteristics of Bob’s legacy of fearlesness, innovative practice, cross-disciplinary exploration, and collaboration among artists. Our goal is to fund areas where others may not be by removing the hurdles of measurement and delivery and focus on the investigation of new territory and a philanthropic DNA which speaks to Rauschenberg’s own practice.” said Christy MacLear, the Executive Director of the Foundation.
The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation invited 80 arts organizations across the country to apply for the second AIC grant cycle. After a competitive application process, nine grants totaling $855,000 will be awarded to a diverse group of creative projects.
