2012 F.E.A.S.T. AT VISARTS - 1st Annual
SATURDAY, MARCH 24, 2012
7:00 - 10:30 p.m.
Gibbs Street Gallery
155 Gibbs Street
Rockville, MD 20850
F.E.A.S.T at VisArts (Funding Emerging Art with Sustainable Tactics) hopes to develop a bridge between artists and the community. F.E.A.S.T is a public dinner designed to use community-driven financial support to democratically fund new and emerging art makers. The first F.E.A.S.T at VisArts will take place on March 24, 2012 in the Gibbs Street Gallery in Rockville, Maryland. Patrons will give a $30 donation for which they receive supper and a ballot. Diners spend the evening reviewing a series of project proposals and conversing with the artists behind each idea. Attendees cast a vote for their favorite proposal, and by the end of the night, the artist who garners the most votes is awarded a grant comprised of that evening’s door money.
F.E.A.S.T at VisArts #1 will feature a meal of locally grown food prepared by chef Andre Cavallaro of Sub Urban Trading Company, Kensington, MD. To participate in the March F.E.A.S.T, the first 75 guests who pay $30 (per person) will be eligible to enjoy dinner, a review of proposals and to vote on their project selection for an immediate F.E.A.S.T grant.
F.E.A.S.T at VisArts #1 invites artists, thinkers, and organizations to submit proposals for funding up to $1,000. Project proposals for F.E.A.S.T at VisArts #1 will address the theme SUSTAINABILITY. F.E.A.S.T at VisArts is based on F.E.A.S.T Brooklyn’s (www.feastinbklyn.org) model for sustaining artist projects directly through community participation.
F.E.A.S.T at VisArts will be held in conjunction with the VisArts exhibition, FIELD WORK,presenting the work of nine artists who investigate the relationships between community, resources, sustainability and art.
