Telfair Museums, in partnership with The Grey, is delighted to announce an inaugural $500 crowd-funded microgrant to a local Savannah artist to commission a publicly-engaged artwork! This competition, judged by a panel as well as the local community, is open to artists working and living in, and around, Savannah who are not in a degree-seeking program. The proposed work must be part of a non-existing project, open to the public, and should be site-specific and community responsive in a way that is socially engaging for the Savannah community. This competition is open to all forms of expression, including but not limited to visual, performing, sound, and literary disciplines which activate a public social space. The winning artist will have three months to realize their work and prepare for an artist talk at the Jepson Center, which will be free and open to the public.
Saturday, May 13, 12–3pm
Admission: $25 at the door
