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.

Undocumented: poems about immigration and deportation

Undocumented explores the story of Mayson’s Liberian family’s 16-year saga as undocumented “illegal aliens” in America. Mayson will create a book of poems that are informed by the memories and perspectives of the various players (INS records, family, legal aid attorneys, catholic church, etc.) that she will interview.
