Georgia Tech Arts Awarded Major Gift to Launch arte_FITS x GT Arts
More on arte FITS x GT Arts
arte_FITS Foundation, a non-profit art organization located at Dorado Beach, Puerto Rico, was founded by museologist Carolina Stubbe in 2008, and is a pioneer in the production of ephemeral art on the island.
Georgia Tech Arts is proud to announce a partnership with the arte_FITS Foundation through a $275,000 private gift from Friedel & Carolina Stubbe. arte_FITS x GT Arts features two interconnected components: the arte_FITS Fellows program and the arte_FITS Ephemeral Art Fund. Both components will have a transformative impact on both Georgia Tech students and the work of artists in Puerto Rico and beyond.
Spring 2023 will see the project launch with a call for students to help create an underwater sculpture, the first step in this multi-year initiative that brings together professional artists with Georgia Tech students to develop and create ephemeral art projects.
