2019 Grant Recipients
WaveMaker Grants Cycle 5 will provide cash awards up to $6,000 each totaling $60,000 to twelve visual artists, curators, creative/arts writers, cultural organizers, collectives, collaboratives, partnerships, and artist-run spaces currently residing in Miami-Dade County.
WaveMaker Grants is part of the Andy Warhol Foundation of Visual Arts Regional Regranting Program, and was the first in the southeast founded under the former Cannonball non-profit. Since 2015, WaveMaker has awarded more than forty grants to creatives across Miami-Dade County through a juried process supporting projects that are non-commercial, non-institutional, stimulate critical thinking and dialogue, and expose audiences to innovative artistic practices typically under- recognized by traditional venues.
Grantees for the fifth cycle of WaveMaker Grants were selected by an independent juror panel of distinguished arts professionals: Daniel Fuller, Curator at Atlanta Contemporary (Atlanta, Georgia), Natasha L Logan, Associate Director of Public Projects at Creative Time (New York, New York), Phillip Agnew, 2017 WaveMaker Recipient & Co-Founder of Smoke Signals Studios (Miami, Florida) and Carolina García Jayaram, President of CGJ Consulting (Miami); former President & CEO National YoungArts Foundation, and Co-Founder of Cannonball (formerly LegalArt). The jurors selected the grant recipients based on the projects’ conceptual rigor and relevance to the local cultural, geographic, and socio-economic context, uniquely innovative and visionary impact on the local community, and the accessibility of the resulting project to the public.
