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.

Dear Mel

A cross-genre book including prose, poetry and images, Dear Mel, is a reconciliation of American and familial secrets; and the compromises of Jewish assimilation. Based on Lichtenberg's great-grandfather's recently restored 1927 film performed in blackface, Dear Mel is a particular yet classic American story to be shared and reconciled.
