We learned this week that Flux Factory, the amazing artist residency and creative arts laboratory in the Dutch Kills area of LIC, has received their second NEA (National Endowment for the Arts) grant! More specifically, it is an Art Works grant in the amount of $10,000. Here are some of their future plans:

In 2013 we will expand our Flux Artist-in-Residence program (FAIR) to include two six-month curator residencies per year, during which the participants will work side-by-side with resident artists in an immersive environment to create new work collectively. Each residency will culminate in a public exhibition at the Flux Factory gallery, as well as related programming. NEA support will be used specifically for the planning and implementation of the curator residents’ public-facing activities.

They also received at $15,000 NEA grant that will be applied to their public exhibitions, workshops, debates, and other educational programming, in 2013. Congratulations, Flux Factory! We look forward to your upcoming work in 2013.
