The University of Wyoming Art Museum, along with the UW Art Department, and the Jentel Artist Residency Program, are co-hosting an information session with Creative Capital on Monday, September 23 at 6:30 p.m. in the Visual Arts Building, room 111.
Creative Capital is a New York City-based nonprofit organization that acts as a catalyst for the development of adventurous and imaginative ideas by supporting artists who pursue innovation in form and/or content in the performing and visual arts, film and video, and in emerging fields. In 2014, Creative Capital will be considering proposals in the Film/Video and Visual Arts. In 2015, the grant round will re-open for Emerging Fields, Innovative Literature and Performing Arts proposals.
Sean Elwood, Director of Programs & Initiatives, will be present for an informal presentation and to answer questions regarding the Creative Capital’s upcoming grant rounds. Elwood is the former Curator and Collection Manager of the Seattle Arts Commission, Director of Special Projects at Ronald Feldman Fine Arts (New York) and Manager of the Art Residency Program at the Centrum Foundation (Port Townsend, WA). Elwood received a Max Beckmann Scholarship at Brooklyn Museum Art School and holds an MA in visual arts from Hunter College. He has been a visual arts reviewer for the Jentel Artist Residency Program applicants for the past two years.
The program is free and open to all Wyoming artists, UW students, and the public. For in-depth information on the foundation, past recipients and current work, please visit www.creative-capital.org.
