The group has developed the Artists Create Change Project: presenting new experiences that connect us to one another and the world around us.
More about CRNY: Designed to support employment opportunities for artists, the program is funding 98 collaborations involving a dynamic group of 300 artists employed by community-based organizations, municipalities, and tribal governments across New York State. CRNY has awarded a total of $49.9M in funding to support artists’ salaries and benefits, with an additional $11.7M in funding provided to the organizations holding employment.
Harper Bella and Jose Tutiven will work with BACCA, a nonprofit arts council located in the Town of Babylon, to create interactive, immersive outdoor public art installations designed to generate opportunities for cultural exchange and education. The work will highlight local artists and create a framework for future community engagement. BACCA will receive $75,000 to support the collaboration, including artists’ salaries and benefits.
