We are pleased to announce the selection of Piney Wood Atlas as recipients of the 2017 Lupita’s Artist Project Grant.

Piney Wood Atlas is a collaboration between Alicia Toldi and Carolina Porras.

In a series of road trips, they visit and catalogue small, emerging, and unconventional artist residencies around the country, soaking up the unique atmosphere of each residency by spending time in the space while having conversations with the facilitators and artists. The project is an ongoing process that will continually contribute to a multimedia tour log of their travels and findings, and help connect the dots between artists and artist residencies.

With a printed field guide for each region of the country and an interactive website, Piney Wood Atlas will be a resource and tool for artists, as well as a platform that accepts contributions of writing and ideas from artists and facilitators. Its goal is to broaden the creative community while showing that the residency and the journey there can be an attainable, productive, and fun adventure

We were thrilled to receive so many thoughtful and provocative applications, and be exposed to new practices and projects. Stay in touch for future opportunities, events, and updates on this project as it unfolds!
