The 2010/2011 MOCA GA Working Artist Project (WAP) is an awards program to support established visual artists of merit who reside in the Atlanta metropolitan area. This initiative provides an unparalleled level of support for individual artists, expands the Museum's mission, and promotes Atlanta as a city where artists can live, work and thrive. As with past years, jurors selected three visual artists to receive the award, representing our city's best and brightest. These artists will be supported with an exhibition, promotion, a studio assistant, and a major stipend to create work over the course of one year. This program is supported by a major grant from The Charles Loridans Foundation with additional funding from the National Endowment for the Arts.
Allison Unruh, Assistant Curator of Contemporary Art at the Indianapolis Museum of Art (IMA) served as this year's guest juror.

  1. Hi

    I am an Atlanta based film maker and photographer who proposes to make a short documentary film on your ART etc.
    You may check out my portfolio before deciding on how this could help you further your reach:

    I am blessed with a strong sense of narrative and a contemporary visual style.
    As I do the A-Z of the film making myself, you might find me an affordable option too!

    Please let me know if we could discuss this further.
