Our recent workshopping of GCAC artist-in-residence Paul Ramirez Jonas project Public Trust, 2016 has had an outstanding response.  Public Trust, 2016 is a major public art project commissioned for Boston by the public art organization Now and There.  We invite you to join us on April 2nd from 7-10pm when Paul will be back in residence to perform the work for the last time at GCAC before it goes to Boston.

Over the past two First Saturday Santa Ana Art Walks, Paul has been performing the work in the GCAC exhibition space through public engagement.  At the March 5 performance we had a visit from the 2017 Whitney Biennial Curators, Mia Locks and Christopher Lew, who sat down with Paul to take part in the project.

Public Trust, 2016 has been developed through a Grand Central Art Center artist-in-residence and a commission from Now and There, Boston, MA.  Support for the residency has been provided by a grant to GCAC from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts.
