Workshop JAH is happy to announce that Jonny Hanna has been awarded one of the highly prestigious Burning Man Global Arts Grants for his project “Forget Me Not.” The project is one of 20 such grants awarded to community-based art projects around the world. This year’s projects will take place in Tel Aviv, Bengaluru, Budapest, Kiev, and Cleveland to name a few!
The project was born out of the Cleveland Public Library’s 150th-anniversary planning process being undertaken by the CUDC. The project will culminate as an art installation and piece of permanent urban furniture in the plaza space of the Eastman Branch of the Cleveland Public Library. It will be comprised of a multi-rowed fabricated seating structure, and the reprogramming of a formally defunct gallery space within the library looking out onto the plaza space through a 17' x 14' window.
