Awarded Resource Grant For Winged Interactive Light Sculpture
by Daric Gill
I am very happy to announce that I’ve received an Artist Resource Grant by the Greater Columbus Arts Council for 2019. This grant will go towards my most ambitious project to date, an interactive light sculpture made from robotics and a 17 foot wide reclaimed airplane wing. The wing will proudly be on display in the annual Greater Columbus exhibition June 14 to Sept. 29, 2019 at the Columbus Museum of Art. The exhibition will feature works made by myself and other recent recipients of the prestigious Visual Arts Fellowship.
While my project isn’t exactly top-secret, I am trying to keep some of the surprises hush-hush… for now. Let’s just say it involves you, NASA, and some beautiful lights. Keep an eye out for updates as the work on this interactive piece progresses!
I am grateful for your support. Thank you!
Special Thanks to Greater Columbus Arts Council, The City of Columbus, & The Columbus Museum Of Art!
