A Place for Creativity & Creative People In CNY
The Alchemical Nursery's Trash Transformer Project has enabled and facilitated the creation of artworks from castoff, waste products, and discarded materials starting in 2009 with the mission of demonstrating the problem of over-consumption, rampant consumerism, and excessive use of resources in our culture.
In both 2009 and 2010, we hosted a traveling exhibit of the TTP works at numerous Syracuse locations, and auctioned off a number of the pieces, with a portion of the proceeds going to the artists. In 2010, we received a Cultural Resources Center grant which enabled us to provide stipend awards to artists for producing works for the TTP collection. In 2011, three pieces from our TTP collection are being featured as part of the Syracuse Art Library.
In 2011, we have been awarded a $500 grant to continue this project, but our primary organizer has had to step back from her planned oversight of the funds and the project - and now we need someone new!
Are you interested in taking on the role of volunteer curator / administrator to oversee the project, solicit artists, and acquire artworks? We have a $500 grant at our disposal for supporting costs/expenses and artist stipends. You would be supported by our volunteer Board of Directors whom have administered the project in previous years, but allowed to express your independence and vision for the project as you see fit within the Alchemical mission, grant guidelines, and general direction of the previous TTP activities.
If interested contact Frank at firstname.lastname@example.org or 315-308-1372 or message here at cnyartists.com so that we can discuss the details and figure out the best use of the funds within the grant agreement, and towards the goals of the TTP and the Alchemical Nursery mission.
