Lynne Yamaguchi – “Repair, Remake, Redeem”
“A visual art project making, deconstructing, and reconstructing wood vessels or constructing new forms from their pieces while posing the question, “How do we make whole the brokenness of the world?””
“Five artists have been awarded $4,000 each to start innovative new art projects thanks to the New Works Artist Project Grant. The New Works Grant seeks to support diverse, innovative artwork created and produced by artists in the City of Tucson and Pima County. This year’s recipients explore new mediums and inventive presentation techniques — addressing themes like race, community, trauma, and healing in creative ways. This grant round features projects in the categories of visual arts, literary arts, and video/film/moving image.” (Arts Foundation for Tucson and Southern Arizona)
