COVID-19 Micro-grant Showcase
Our virtual exhibition of the awarded COVID-19 Micro-grant projects is now live! Supported projects include arts and humanities-based works engaging lived experiences of the pandemic.
Our Virtual Exhibition is now LIVE
During the summer of 2020, the Glasscock Center awarded the Glasscock COVID-19 Microgrant to eleven individuals. This microgrant program, inspired by the Willson Center’s Shelter Projects, was offered to help support the TAMU community in developing shareable arts and humanities-based works engaging their experiences of the current pandemic. The awarded projects vary in artistic and academic nature and will be available for viewing upon the launch of our Virtual Exhibition in February 2021. This exhibition will be live through summer 2021, which allows us to update and add pieces to unfinished or ongoing projects. See the list of the projects below, and view the exhibition at tx.ag/GCHRc19showcase.
