LEARN ABOUT THE ARTISTS SELECTED FOR THE THIRD ANNUAL ART IN THIS PRESENT MOMENT SERIES.
The Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation is excited to announce our third annual Art In This Present Moment grantees. This year we are partnering with three art organizations that have each selected artists who will work on a specific project that responds to something significant to them in this present moment.
These art organizations are Funny Asian Women’s Kollective (FAWK), Pangea World Theater and Duluth Art Institute.
About the Organizations
To combat the invisibility and dehumanization of Asian Pacific Islander Desi American (APIDA) women, Funny Asian Women Kollective (FAWK) uses humor and comedy to tell distinct stories of the Asian community.
Pangea World Theater strives to build a just world by creating multi-disciplinary theater that embodies decolonizing practices of solidarity, sustainability and equity. Since its inception in 1995, Pangea World Theater has worked with artists from many communities locally, nationally and internationally to create new aesthetic realities for an increasingly diverse audience.
For more than 112 years, Duluth Art Institute has been providing arts programming to Duluth and the surrounding region. The institute strives to enrich the daily lives of its community with dynamic innovative visual arts programming that upholds excellence and promotes inclusive community participation. Duluth Art Institute has selected two groups of artists.
The first group will be working on a project called the Chief Buffalo Mural, led by artist Moira Villiard and consisting of artists Sylvia Houle, Michelle Defoe and Awanigiishik. The second group will include photographer Dudley Edmondson.
Art in This Present Moment
This project is part of Art in This Present Moment, an initiative of the Saint Paul & Minnesota Foundation. We provided grants to three Minnesota-based nonprofit organizations to fund work by BIPOC artists who are changing and challenging dominant narratives through their craft.
