Fulcrum Fund Celebration & Catalog Release


Saturday, December 9, 5-9pm

516 ARTS announces Celebration and Catalog Release Party for the Fulcrum Fund, which has supported local artists with $110,000 in grants to date.

516 ARTS presents a one-night-only event to celebrate the work of Fulcrum Fund grant recipients. Come meet the artists and learn about, interact with and experience their work. This event includes the release of the first Fulcrum Fund catalog centered around the artists’ projects, and which includes writings to contextualize them in our current place and time through essays by Dr. Josie Lopez and David Leigh. The evening features: music by DJ Marjory Sweet playing vintage African and Reggae (5-7pm) and a live performance by beatboxer Zack Freeman (7-9pm); catering generously provided by The Grove Cafe & Market; and Tractor Brewing.

Artists who have received Fulcrum Fund grants in the past two years will be in attendance to share excerpts from or previews of their projects. Some artists will offer interactive, hands-on experiences including live screenprinting and participatory sculpture making, while others will present video and photo documentation, publications, artworks and other displays.
