ICDAD Activity Grant Report: "Folding Cosmos"

May 28, 2021

ICDAD is thrilled to share the report from our most recent grantee, designer Miwako Kurashima, who applied for funding to complete the publication of an exhibition catalogue. 

A traveling exhibition, Folding Cosmos was set to open at the Noguchi Museum in Queens, New York, and the publication Folding Cosmos: Small Part of Infinity was meant to debut along with the installation there. The pandemic delayed the exhibition, but a grant from ICDAD helped bring the publication to print. Read more about the project in Miwako's grant report, found here: _folding cosmos.

Thank you to all our members for supporting grant funding with your membership dues, and stay tuned for future grant opportunities!
