This project is supported by corporate sponsorship from ARUP, & Genelec. Additional support has been provided by an Ella Foundation Pratt Emerging Artists Grant, From the Durham Arts Council, with support from the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resource + a grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Arts.
The Foundation for Contemporary Arts has awarded großer Lauscher with an emergency grant to purchase equipment for exhibition. The organization has a rich history in its formation and through the dedication of artists supporting artists:
"In 1962 Jasper Johns, John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, and other painters and sculptors came together to help Merce Cunningham and his dance company finance a proposed season on Broadway by arranging for a sale of their artworks. Their fund-raising efforts were so successful that there was money to spare, and when they asked Cunningham what he thought they should do with it, he replied, “We're all in the same boat--why don't you give it to other performing artists?""
I will be giving a short TED talk in Såo Paulo, Brasil on Our World Insideout.
Other speakers include:
Denis Russo Burgierman
Artists from 9 states will be exhibited in this exhibition. An old mentor and teacher from the Rodger Brown Study Collection was the juror for this year's show, Lisa Stone. Very honored to have my new work, from the series, Fuck You Norman Rockwell on display.
