The Black Rock Arts Foundation supports interactive art projects worldwide, year-round. In our seven years of collaborating with innovative artists, visionaries and community groups, we’ve seen first hand how interactive art can inspire civic engagement and social participation. Our 2008 Grantee and Civic Art projects are inspiring examples of both groundbreaking works of art and new levels of community ownership and participation. Projects like The Temple of the American Dream in Detroit, MI, Peter Hudson’s Homourboros in San Jose, CA, and The Mangrove in Reno, NV brought innovative works of art into the every day lives of the public, many of whom have little access to such large scale interactive works. All of these projects relied on the support of their communities, and hundreds of volunteers. Come celebrate our achievements as a community, and support the proliferation of interactive art!!!
