The Idea Fund
This year Sketch Klubb was awarded an Idea Fund Grant. Here is the official spiel: Through the Warhol Foundation Initiative, Aurora Picture Show, DiverseWorks and Project Row Houses have come together to support art at its source by providing direct grants to artists. The Idea Fund provides cash awards to artist-generated or artist-centered projects that exemplify the unconventional, interventionist, conceptual, entrepreneurial, participatory, or guerrilla artistic practices that occur outside of the traditional frameworks of support. Basically they are giving up a nice amount of cash, and we are going to put on a more elaborate Nerd Garage Sale this summer. A kind of Flea Market meets Sideshow Freak Carnival show. More details to come on that. Here are some photos from the reception on January 21 at Diversworks Artspace.
