Alumni Spotlight: Precipice Fund Grantees
December 07, 2018
Congratulations to the eight Visual Studies Alums who were awarded funding from the Portland Institute for Contemporary Art's Precipice Fund. The Precipice Fund provides funding for artist-run projects of all kinds that are a critically important aspect of the Portland contemporary art community. The funding for the awards are supported by the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts' Regional Regranting Program and Calligram Foundation.

From PICA's website:
"The Precipice Fund provides critical support for artist-driven organizations, projects, initiatives, and publications that exist on the edge of new practice. These projects operate outside of traditional forms of support, galvanize communities, promote critical dialogue, and encourage generative and expansive artistic process while driving culture forward regionally and nationally. These often informal, anti-institutional, serious, intentionally nebulous, and innovative projects are an integral part of the greater Portland region’s vital art ecology and are emulative of the pioneering spirit of the Pacific Northwest."
