How to make your own kinetic sculpture, home decor sculptures and paper sculptures ideas
In 2017, the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) created the first-ever grant for kinetic sculpture.
The grant provides funds for students to design and build a new kinetic sculpture for the National Mall.
The goal is to create a sculpture that “is a new form of art, a new style of art that can be made from materials that are affordable and can be readily accessible to all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, class, age, or any other group that is excluded from the traditional arts of painting, sculpture, and music.”
In 2017 alone, the NEA has given more than $400 million to support new forms of art.
The money is to support a diverse collection of kinetic sculptures, home decorations, paper sculptures and kinetic art that “are an integral part of the public spaces, including art installations and sculptures on public and private property, public parks, libraries, and museums.”
