The Wide Reach Of Arts Funding In Maryland by Carni Klirs
A student project. A 16 foot wide data art installation, to be shown at Maryland Arts Day (the largest annual gathering of arts professionals in Maryland, where they have a chance to connect with their county representatives), visualizing arts funding in the state, broken down by region, county, type of program, then individual grantee. It's meant to be an exploratory visual that viewers can walk up to, and find themselves and their organizations on. It's meant to inspire, spark conversation, and energize the arts community to advocate for continued arts funding for years to come.
