Artist Projects

On Our Radar

Welcome to On Our Radar, a searchable database featuring nearly 300 Emerging Fields, Literature and Performing Arts projects that advanced to the second or third round in last year's highly competitive award selection process.

Although these projects were not ultimately funded by Creative Capital, we feel they are artists to watch, and we invite you to explore them. This site will be online until September 30, 2016.

Flowers Commons: A Greenhouse Laboratory on Aesthetics and Biology

A Greenhouse Laboratory aims to genetically design The Tasty Tulip, a tulip whose bulb has been engineered to be a nutritious and delicious new food source, inspiring larger conversations about biotech design in the future.
