Gus Powell Photography: Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge

Spartanburg Art Museum presents Gus Powell Photography: Bloomberg Philanthropies Public Art Challenge March 15 – May 6. In June 2015, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded four teams $1 million each to realize their public art projects. These winning proposals confronted some of the nation’s most pressing civic issues: abandoned properties, drought, community-police relations, and economic development within the creative sector. At the invitation of Bloomberg Philanthropies, all four of these urban initiatives were visited by acclaimed photographer Gus Powell.  This exhibition is supported by Bloomberg Philanthropies. Free.
