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.

Thomas Paine in Violence

Simultaneously set in and around the mind of the revolutionary activist, Thomas Paine in Violence is a text-dense psychedelic opera inspired by the final days of the American Founding Father's life, the strange events of his “afterlife,” and the shock jock punditry of our contemporary media landscape. Its score is a combination of lightning quick speech and song, electronics, and a vocalizing chorus of instrumentalists.
