Since 1999, Creative Capital has funded three major projects by Seattle artists: Zhi Lin’s history painting series “Five Capital Executions in China,” Deborah F. Lawrence’s cycle of collages titled “Utopia,” and Lead Pencil Studio’s temporary land installation “Maryhill Double.”
Now there will be two more: SuttonBeresCuller’s “Sun Hill Mini-Mart City Park,” and Trimpin’s “Gurs Zyklus.”
Creative Capital, the New York foundation that has been supporting artists with up to $50,000 for each project since 1999, last night announced this year’s winners in visual arts and film/video. The other visual arts recipients include Sanford biggers, Joseph Grigely, Kalup Linzy, Naeem Mohaiemen, Otabenga Jones & Associates, Eve Sussman, and Mario Ybarra, Jr. In film and video, Seattle’s David Russo, a Stranger Genius (like SuttonBeresCuller and Lead Pencil Studio) is a winner.
