Please check out the live virtual gallery!  I am so pleased to be included in this show- and the artwork is super interesting and very on topic (I especially love the Ray Gun piece).  The virtual show is a clever and fun way to see artwork in a gallery-like setting during the pandemic.  Have a glass of wine, sit back and pretend you are out on the town for the evening!

Mozaik Philanthropy

FUTURE.ART.AWARDS.

Virtual Exhibition (now live!)

Welcome to MOZAIK! For over a decade, MOZAIK (formerly, the Neda Nobari Foundation) has worked toward social and environmental justice by seeding hundreds of nascent grassroots organizations and by supporting the inception of arts, education, media, environment and film initiatives, internationally, nationally, and across California. We have always worked to align our resources with our values while fostering a full and authentic expression of our passions and purpose.

We celebrated in 2019, ten years of intense work by announcing a pause to our strategic grantmaking and taking time to reflect on our work to date. Where did we have our greatest impact and where did we achieve our highest purpose? We needed the space to vision and envision what was to come next. Looking closely at our integral part in the culture of philanthropy, we had to examine some unsettling practices that do little to upend the status quo of global poverty, climate chaos, and the political, social and cultural inequality that continues to exclude essential voices from the decision-making table. Ultimately, we asked two poignant questions: What has philanthropy, a $400-billion-a-year industry, really accomplished to bridge the socio-economic and cultural divide? And importantly, where could we as a foundation make the most meaningful difference? Our response is MOZAIK, a conceptually new foundation for the new millennium.

MOZAIK’s mission is to explore and model new practices in philanthropy with disruptive, creative, and catalytic potential. In 2020, we will invite communities to help us to govern our grant-making decisions. We will invite in those who know the organizations and initiatives that will serve their communities the very best; thereby, democratizing access to our foundation’s philanthropic equity, while exploring new modes of participatory, inclusionary, and socially innovative grantmaking. In tandem, we will be working to align our investment practices with our mission, intentionally divesting and investing with a newfound commitment to advancing a just economy. We are deeply inspired by the collective journey ahead. MOZAIK welcomes you to join us. http://www.mozaikphilanthropy.org

As part of our emergency rapid relief response, MOZAIK invited artists across the country to share an art piece inspired by times of crisis and social upheaval that can shed light on the current global pandemic and help us imagine alternative futures. The inclusive contest was open to all professional and amateur U.S. artists, and entries were submitted over the course of five weeks between April 10th through May 17th, 2020. All mediums were welcome, including visual/media arts, sound arts, performance, and social practice. People of Color, Native people, Queer people, Women, and other historically marginalized or underrepresented people were encouraged to submit their art.More than 1,100 artists from across the country responded with submissions.To deepen MOZAIK’s commitment to Flow Funding as a model for diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy, the organization invited its 2019 Flow Funders and Grantees in the arts to serve as judges for a blind review of the submitted works. Winners were announced on May 31st, 2020, with artist honorariums of $2,000 awarded to each of the ten featured artists. Equitable honorariums were also awarded to the judges for their time and expertise.The Future Art Awards virtual exhibition, showcasing the works of the featured artists as well as the special mention artists, is set to open free to the public on June 30th, 2020.

Greenpoint Gallery Covid-19 Show

Stephanie Todhunter

I’m so glad to be included in the Greenpoint Gallery’s first ever virtual gallery show in support of artists during the coronavirus pandemic.  In addition to showcasing local (and not so local) artists work during lockdown, it is also a fundraiser for the gallery.

Please stop by and vote for me for the “popular choice”!  The bad news is that each vote costs $1, the good news is that all the money goes towards supporting Greenpoint Gallery and its programs.

Click here to vote for me!  And thanks for your support!

Boston Artist Relief Fund information

Boston area artists:

The Boston Artist Relief Fund will award grants of $500 and $1,000 to individual artists who live in Boston whose creative practices and incomes are being adversely impacted by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).

With events of all types being canceled to reduce the spread of COVID-19, people who make income partially or fully through gigs and freelance work are losing critical opportunities to support their well-being in our city.

The Boston Artist Relief Fund will open for applications on Thursday, March 12, 2020, for artists who have lost or anticipate losing income. The Boston Artist Relief Fund will be open on a rolling basis and will replace the Opportunity Fund through June 30, 2020. The Opportunity Fund will reopen for applications after July 1. Opportunity Fund applications that were already received in this application cycle will still be considered for funding.

We need joy as we need air
We need love as we need water
We need each other as we need the earth we share.

Maya Angelou

Artist and Guest Curator Anne Plaisance has assembled a group of artists who are working with what she calls, “their vision of the day after tomorrow.” Responding to contemporary issues and citing research reports from both the United Nations and Harvard University on looming problems like climate change, rising sea levels and extreme weather, Plaisance believes artists can focus on leaving the best legacy they possibly can, through art and culture for whatever comes next. She says:
This exhibition is a requiem for humanity, an homage to creativity and beauty, a chapeau bas to love and generosity, an adieu to memories, a last embrace of our cherished ones. Artists in the exhibition include; Susan Denniston, Ashley M. Freeby, Kelly Knight, Sarah Pettitt, Anne Plaisance, Stephanie Todhunter and Robin Whiteman.

*So excited to be a part of this as well!  More info to follow…
