Juliana Shibata receives Minnesota State Arts Board Grant

January 22, 2018

Visiting Assistant Professor of Art, received a Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Visual Arts grant to create three new installations that integrate living flowers with her ceramic ones. She will unite floriography, a language of flowers that has traditionally been rooted in the female experience, with her ceramic practice to produce works that combine specific cultural and historical themes in ways that widen Minnesota's artistic heritage. MSAB funds will also allow Shibata to professionally document her work and approach exhibition venues in Minnesota about displaying her installations.
