FAN’S 25th Annual Meeting
Funding Art Network’s Annual Meeting and Grant Awards Presentation was held on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at 1:00 pm EST on ZOOM. We awarded a total of $230,000 in grants for 21 programs which brings the total of funds awarded by FAN to over $5 million dollars.
FAN’S January 2021 Membership Meeting and 25th Anniversary Kick Off Celebration featured Xavier Cortada speaking about Sea Level Rise: How Art and Science Intersect.
Xavier Cortada is an artist and professor of practice at the University of Miami Department of Art and Art History. Over the past three decades, the Cuban-American artist has created art at the North and South poles and across 6 continents, including more than 75 public artworks and dozens of installations, collaborative murals and socially engaged projects.
The crux of Cortada’s work finds itself rooted in a deep conceptual engagement of his participants. Particularly environmentally focused, the work Cortada develops is intended to generate awareness and action towards issues of global climate change.
