Carter Burden Center for the Aging
Grant Awarded: $40,000
“The Grand Assembly” is a curated online community that showcases a generation of senior (60 year and older) creatives and their work to a wider audience.
This grant is to launch and grow “The Grand Assembly” in collaboration with Making Art Work/Gallery 307 of the Carter Burden Center for the Aging in New York City. Through video portraits of individual creatives and a commerce-enabled platform, they are empowered to become entrepreneurs by selling their work, being commissioned or teaching. Making Art Work/Gallery 307 will feature the artists’ work in their pop-up store/gallery exhibition space in Chelsea. The Grand Assembly project is being spearheaded by Lillian Lee.
