Residents Angelica Sandoval and Calder Kamin have accepted the first round of Inspiration Grants awarded by Arts KC.
These residents are 2 of 9 artists selected from twenty eight applicants after a two part application process which includes review by a panel of community members. Annually, approximately eighty artists apply, all of which receive individualized coaching on their proposals.
A fall installation in the storefront windows at the offices of BNIM in the Power & Light Building by ceramicist Angelica Sandoval will feature 200 sculpted light vessels with LED bulbs. At night, light from the porcelain globes will draw visitors from several blocks away to experience the exhibition.
Calder Kamin: ($250)
Funding for the costs of documenting and transporting new work by visual artist Calder Kamin will help her take advantage of several regional and local exhibition opportunities, including two shows planned for Austin. Calder’s work focuses on synanthropes, incorporating themes of biodiversity and the impact on animals living in man-made environments.
