The NEA and WVDACH Award ARP Arts Grant to Pat Cross

The ARP Arts Grant awarded to Pat Cross helps her to create Eleanor's 2020 Vision, a series of original artworks showing the perks of living in a town designed to support the well-being of its citizens.

"When Eleanor Roosevelt designed this town in the early 1930's, she wanted to encourage people to interact safely outdoors and with each other," says Pat Cross. This series of paintings and drawings shows how that design plays out in our own modern times.

The project involves Pat's creation of one new artwork per week over a 30-week period. Click here to watch this series develop called Eleanor's 2020 Vision.

This program, Eleanor’s 2020 Vision, is presented with financial assistance from the West Virginia Division of Culture and History, and the National Endowment for the Arts, with approval from the West Virginia Commission on the Arts.
