Posted: August 30, 2018

Information sessions for the Animating Infrastructure Grant program will be held September 24-October 26. The program is designed to encourage communities to engage artists in the planning, design and/or fabrication of public art in infrastructure projects and to encourage thinking beyond the ordinary as concepts for new buildings, roads, bridges, and other public spaces are developed. Participants will learn about the application process, and will have time to brainstorm ideas for projects in their community. Sessions are led by Michele Bailey, senior program manager at the Vermont Arts Council. Anyone wanting to learn more about this grant program is encouraged to attend. Read More
