Telluride Arts: Grant from National Endowment for the Arts!

The National Endowment for the Arts recently announced that organizations throughout the United States will receive federal awards for arts projects in the first round of fiscal year 2021 funding. NEA grants totaling more than $27.5 million will provide Americans opportunities for arts participation – this announcement includes the Grants for Arts Projects (including Design), as well as Research Grants in the Arts and Creative Writing and Translation Fellowships.

Telluride Arts is elated to be a recipient of an NEA Arts Projects Grant, for two Chromasonic artworks; a new installation at the Telluride Transfer Warehouse and an expanded installation of “Fluid State” at the Deep Creek Mine. 

The existing installation is composed of four connected spaces created by a series of translucent scrims. Light waves generated from sound waves illuminate each of the four rooms using “Chromasonic-Refrequencing,” a real-time algorithmic process that extends natural perception by creating fundamental relationships between light and sound.

Collaborating partners include Telluride Arts, Deep Creek Experimental, The Deep Creek Mine, Studio Chromasonic, and Original Thinkers.

As Arts Endowment Acting Chairman Ann Eilers notes: “The creativity and resilience of artists and arts organizations across the country have inspired Americans during this challenging year. These projects represent the vitality and perseverance of arts organizations small and large to overcome significant challenges, transform to new ways of engagement, and forge new relationships that benefit the diverse populations in neighborhoods and cities throughout the United States.”

Stay tuned for the debut of Chromasonic at the Telluride Transfer Warehouse and Deep Creek Mine this summer!
