Bridget Beck: Will Be

Bridget Beck (UC Los Angeles): $2,500 for Will Be: a collaborative community sculpture with South Dakota’s Native American and disadvantaged youth focused on empowerment and future building. Graduate Arts Grant

UCLA graduate student Bridget Beck will work with PROJECT RESPECT.ORG, a South Dakota non-profit working to combat sexual and gender based violence amongst South Dakota’s Native American and disadvantaged youth to create a collaborative community sculpture which will be finished and installed at UCLA. Participants will create large sculptural elements and portraits in South Dakota that will be shipped to UCLA. A blog will be created and will document all steps of the sculpture’s progress beginning with the weeklong workshop in SD and culminating with the sculpture’s installation in Los Angeles.
