The wait is over! People’s Liberty is excited to share the winners of the 2019 Globe Grant. These three groups will transform the Globefront gallery over the course of 2019, as People’s Liberty’s five-year timeline reaches its conclusion. The 2019 Globe Grant winners for the Elm Street/Findlay Market space are:
• Sankofa by Jennie Wright, Siri Imani Huey, and Alexis Thompson; January 28–March 30: It will create immersive, thought-provoking art environments that celebrate and take the visitor back in time to specific milestones in African-American music and culture.
• PL: Puzzling Location by John Bromels, Mike Augustine, and Jeremy Dubin; April 1–June 1: It will integrate hidden puzzle elements into the design of the space and, challenging visitors to participate in "quests" with clues that will take participants out into the community, to a variety of Cincinnati locations.
• Digital Playscape by Noah Glaser and Allison Lester; June 3–August 3: It will create an immersive and interactive STEAM learning experience enjoyable for all ages. Technology and hands-on activity will be at the core.
Our 2019 Globe Grantees were carefully selected by a panel of talented and inspiring leaders. Jurors took the time to review each application thoroughly and thoughtfully. All project proposals were scored based on feasibility, novelty [specific to Greater Cincinnati] and projected community impact. A huge thank-you to this group of panelists, listed below.
