Highlighting artists working in the public sphere to provide agency and access to basic human needs and resources through mobile means.

Screenings of FIELDWORKS are made possible by A Blade of Grass, a nonprofit organization dedicated to nurturing socially engaged art. Events are produced in collaboration with Art21, Inc., a non-profit contemporary art organization serving artists, students, teachers, and the general public worldwide.

Hey, I made an Art in Your Ear Spotify playlist!

It’s the first one I’ve made – still learning – so the order isn’t yet ideal. But we are getting there!

A good resource for y’all – show is over but still, Artists!

57 artists’ works span 3 museums and reflect 4 counties. The Ringling Museum, Museum of Fine Arts St. Petersburg, and Tampa Museum of Art share this exhibit of artists from the Tampa Bay area. All works were made since the beginning of 2016. There hasn’t been a survey of this kind in memory.

Curators of the exhibition and museums joined us today. You can listen back to the interview over there –>

Joining us were

Ringling Museum  ~ Chris Jones, Asst. Curaotor of Photography & New Media
Tampa Museum of Art  ~ Joanna Robotham, Curator of Modern & Contemporary Art, Seth Pevnick & Chief Curator & Curator of Greek & Roman Art
St. Petersburg Museum of Fine Art  ~ Katherine Pill, Curator of Contemporary Art & Robin O’Dell, Curator of the Photographic Collection

Guest juror Diana Nawi, Associate Curator at the Pérez Art Museum Miami participated in the process, to help give a sympathetic to the idea, but not connected to the artist eye to the final selection.
