Grand Central Art Center Receives $25,000 Metabolic Studio Grant

Grand Central Art Center is excited to announce the awarding of a major Metabolic Studio grant.

To mark the upcoming centenary of the Los Angeles Aqueduct (11.5.2013), the Metabolic Studio has awarded a grant, in the amount of $25,000, to Grand Central Art Center to realize a residency/project with artist Matthew Moore that will bring consciousness to the impact and importance of this monumental piece of hydraulic engineering.  The Metabolic Studio convened Chora Council 2012: an anonymous team of civic, tribal, educational, environmental, museum, and non-profit leaders from along the Aqueduct’s 223-mile length to nominate the organizations and institutions that are receiving funding.

As announced by Lauren Bon and the Metabolic Studio, this grant to Grand Central Art Center is one of twenty-one Chora Council grants, representing over $1.6 million of funding.  Providing significant support for action, research, education, and community building in the context of “one hundred years of LA water”, the Chora docket reflects on the past century in the context of glacial time, while simultaneously acting for the coming 100 years.
