Awarded Grant For Interactive Light & Sound Sculpture At The Pizzuti Collection of the Columbus Museum Of Art

by Daric Gill

Today is a good day! I am very pleased to announce that I’ve received a Support for Professional Artists: Individuals grant by the Greater Columbus Arts Council in the amount of $1750! This grant will go towards building an interactive light and sound sculpture slated for exhibition later this year. The sculpture will proudly be on display in the annual Greater Columbus exhibition at the Pizzuti Collection of the  Columbus Museum of Art. The exhibition will feature works made by myself and other recent recipients of the prestigious Visual Arts Fellowship.

 

My inclusion in this exhibition comes as an invitation after receiving an artist in residency to Dresden, Germany in 2019. I’m so excited to start working on it using this very gracious funding. 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 Pizzuti Collection, & The Columbus Museum Of Art!

Awarded Resource Grant For Interactive Winged Light Sculpture

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!

This grant will go towards a more versatile time-lapse camera and accessories to be used towards the documentation and educational purposes of the solo exhibition and additionally throughout all of my future art-making.

For several years I’ve documented my process and shared it with the world. With a solo exhibition coming up in January, I’m in need of an upgrade in equipment. The $495 supply grant will purchase equipment for better documentation of my art-making process, personal reference, accessible educational examples, and more immersive storytelling. Keep an eye out for new process videos coming soon!

The Arts Council receives its funding primarily through the City of Columbus’ Hotel/Motel Bed tax. As Columbus encourages people into her city through interesting culture and attractions, a portion of the taxes garnered from the hospitality gets cycled back into that same rich culture. In this way, I’d like to thank the public most of all for your continued interest in Columbus and the arts.
