SUBPAR and Salt City Dishes are the front page story of this week’s The Eagle (CNY). The paper included two articles about the grant and gives a glowing review of the microgrant event:
“Only one of the nine project proposals would walk away with the $1,000 minigrant from the debut Salt City DISHES dinner on Sunday, but the intangible benefits, the networking and exposure each project gained from the event were just as invaluable.”
A second article details the ideas behind our winning proposal:
“The SUBPAR proposal will create “unconventional street art” using hand-made, screenprinted ceramic tiles mortared permanently into place in an otherwise unused, unnoticed public space.
‘Imagine a series of tiles that add a splash of color on a drab grey wall or boarded up window,’ the team said during their presentation Sunday.”
