BIPOC Artists Bridging Social Distance in the Public Realm (BABSD)


BABSD will commission three visual
or performing artists who identify as Black, Indigenous, and/or People of Color to produce projects that seek to bridge the social distance created by efforts to contain the COVID-19 pandemic.
The BABSD program seeks to engage artists
working in the public realm who are part of the communities most adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically Black and Indigenous artists and artists of color, and including those who identify as Latinx and Asian American.
Each selected artist will receive $2,000 to implement their project. All projects will be selected and reviewed by a panel of BIPOC arts professionals and community members. Projects are anticipated
to be launched in January 2021.

Immediately below I have included several
links that I would be most grateful if you could please share with any artists who you think might be interested. We would, of course, be delighted to receive an application from you as well, if you are interested in applying!
