5790projects is thrilled to announce the winner of the inaugural MFF Grant; Nano Rubio.
Included in 5790projects’ first pop-up show, “Get Lucid,” Rubio recently received his MFA from Claremont Graduate University (CGU). He is the recipient of a Graduate Fellowship from CGU and a Joan Mitchell Foundation MFA Grant Nominee. He has exhibited throughout Southern California at various venues such as the dA Center for Arts (Pomona), Todd Madigan Gallery (CSU Bakersfield), and most recently a solo exhibition at George Lawson Gallery (Los Angeles). The artist lives and works in Bakersfield, CA.
In an effort to support local contemporary artists, 5790projects awards the Moore Family Foundation Grant (MFFG) to one Los Angeles-based artist on an annual basis. The grant recipient will not only be awarded a solo project room show at Mark Moore Gallery (Culver City, CA), but $1,000 in funding. After reviewing numerous submissions and 5790projects nominated exhibition artists, Rubio’s paintings stood out as a incredible display of innovation and process-oriented practice. We thank all of the talented artist that applied for grant consideration. The 2013 grant window will be open from January – November of next year. For more information about applying for the grant, please visit the MFF Grant page on our website.
Nano Rubio’s Project Room show at Mark Moore Gallery will open on January 12, 2013 from 6-8pm, and remain on view through February 9, 2013.
