2019 Mid-Career Project Grantee | $10,000
MoVA: The Museum of Virtual Art
Boss will produce MoVA: The Museum of Virtual Art, a free app that, with curatorial assistance from local institutions, will turn the Minneapolis-St. Paul Green Line into a permanent augmented-reality museum of bigger-than-museum art. It will include world-class architecture, installations, digital art, environmental works, projections, and poetry. Upon completion, audiences are invited to download this GPS-based app, take a seat, and their smartphone will become a window onto a rotating schedule of exhibits viewable from all angles as the train moves “past.”
The McKnight Foundation generously enables Forecast to provide Professional Development Grants for mid-career artists seeking to expand their work in the field of public art. Forecast mid- and early-career grants are designed to support independent projects, leadership development, professional development, risk-taking, multidisciplinary approaches, and collaborative problem-solving in the field of public art.
