Eternal Harvest by David Wayne Reed, 2017 Rocket Grant recipient.

The Rocket Grants program aims to fuel the energy of the Kansas City regional visual arts community by encouraging and supporting innovative, under-the-radar and public-facing work in non-traditional spaces.

Rocket Grants were launched by the Charlotte Street Foundation in Kansas City, MO and the Spencer Museum of Art at KU in Lawrence, KS, with funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Each year around ten projects are selected to receive up to $6,000, including eight Project Awards, and two Research & Development Awards.
