After a vote at the April 23rd meeting we are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2019 CWC Grants 

 

The $15,000 grant was awarded to the Hirshhorn Museum for ARTLAB 

ARTLAB is a radically inclusive digital art studio for teens thirteen to nineteen years old. It opened in 2011 at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden to provide local youth free access to the latest technology, a wide range of art materials, and one-on-one mentorship from professional artists to support their creative learning. With a variety of special programs and resources, ARTLAB cultivates community and fosters the next generation of innovators.

The $3,000 for individual artists went to Susan Sterner for The (in)Visible Project, a mobile photo portrait, spoken-word and book making interaction with women from El Salvador living in Washington, DC.

First-ever CWC Grant Awarded to Cultural DC's Mobile Art Gallery

May 22, 2018

Under the leadership of Molly Rolandi, our Grants Committee presented its first-ever award of $15,000 to Cultural DC's Mobile Art Gallery. Please view the photo and press release by clicking here.

The Mobile Art Gallery was chosen from an original field of sixteen extremely well-qualified applicants, representing museums, schools, artists, and non-profit entities. These applicants were narrowed down to three finalists who were then voted upon by CWC's membership.

The Mobile Art Gallery is a fully converted 40 feet shipping container transformed into an immersive art environment. The Mobile Art Gallery moves every 8 weeks and features a new artist and a unique community-centered art experience designed to connect with every neighborhood it visits. The Mobile Art Gallery will visit every ward in Washington, DC during its first year.
