Introducing the 2017 Effigy and Temple!

CATS is currently busy reviewing and scoring 25 Seed Round grant applications, we’ll announce those projects mid April.   But in the meantime we’re excited to announce this year’s Effigy and Temple!  

Effigy

$8000

Heart of Gold (Effigy)

by Mark Switzer and Jules Pellerin, in loving memory of Skyler and Isabel

Heart of Gold is a beautifully profound sculpture with several advanced flame effects (and surprises) for the 2017 Apogaea Effigy. Heart of Gold will be a collaborative piece of art, allowing community members to get involved in creating and operating the piece, offering opportunities for both new and experienced artists to learn more about the fire arts and fabrication skills. The core sculpture of Heart of Gold is also a gift to the Apogaea community and will be left in the care of Apogaea to use for future events as desired.

Join us in an evening of mingling, a brief introduction to rangering, a Q&A session, and story time by experienced rangers. This evening will help you get all your questions answered to see if this is the right department for you!

BIG MONEY grant round closed

The Big Money art grant round is now officially closed and CATS has received a total of 43 grant applications for over $155,000 in requested funds! With just $45,000 in grants available for this round, we know we won’t be able to make all of your artistic dreams come true, but we are excited to help fund as much BIG art as possible for Apogaea 2017!

Artists, we’ve entered the Q&A round currently, followed by scoring, so keep an eye on your email for info about the next steps in the process.

We’ll be announcing the winners of Big Money grants in late February.

Coming up next… SEED MONEY grant round

For those of you who may have missed this round, or have a smaller artistic endeavor in mind for this year, keep an eye out for the Seed Money grant round that will be opening on February 28th. The Seed Money round will fund projects up to $599 and is available for all sorts of projects who need just a little bit of support to come to fruition. Details and reminders to come as we get closer.

Thanks again to the wonderful artists of Apogaea for all of their submissions. We’re excited to see all of the Art of Apogaea this year!
