Dedicated to exposing multi- and interdisciplinary contemporary art, CCA provides emerging and established artists with opportunities to explore new ideas and take creative risks. The grant supported the establishment of the region’s first state-of-the-art Digital Media Lab. Opened in May 2007, CCA’s Digital Media Lab is an arts facility focused on arts education in digital media programming, and is specifically designed to impact middle and high school students, working artists and community members. It aims to provide workshops and opportunities to create original works in electronic media, including digital documentaries, video art projects, and animation together with an exploration of media literacy.
The Center for Contemporary Arts received general operating support for its inter-disciplinary arts programming and organizational development.
