Thanks to Project One
for hosting a great party and all the artists who helped make a terrific show last night. We wish we could have given out grants to everyone, but we only had enough money to give out three.
Without further ado, here are the artists who took home $2,500 checks to spend however they please:
Packard Jennings' work invades the lives of everyday people and isn't confined to a gallery. Imagine finding his anarchist action figure at Wal-Mart or one of his brochures at Walgreens directing you to locally-owned stores. You would have to stop and consider what you were looking at -- who left it there? Why? In a consumer culture in which we're bombarded with empty sales slogans every day, Jennings makes us stop and think about the way we interact with the world.
