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.
