Pippin Frisbie-Calder awarded $5000 grant to bring 'Cancelled Edition' to ArtPrize Nine

On June 5th with just five minutes and five slides alumna Pippin Frisbie-Calder (MFA 2017) won a $5000 grant to install 'Cancelled Edition' at the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts in Grand Rapids, Michigan.  The Pitch Night competition was held at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

Frisbie-Calder will use the grant proceeds to re-create 'Cancelled Edition,' an interactive installation first shown at the Carroll Gallery as part of her MFA Thesis exhibition in April. For the installation Frisbie-Calder will create a collection of 400 woodcut prints of the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, a bird thought to be extinct. As collectors purchase prints of the birds, the exhibition simulates the process of extinction.
