On-Sight/Insight

Academic Enrichment Grant

 2009-2010 Project Summary

John Brandhorst

On-Site/Insight • Atlanta, Georgia

On-Site/Insight brings together art students from a high-achieving high school with at risk students in elementary and high schools in disadvantaged areas to create site-specific art works. Students develop interdisciplinary curriculum to explore contemporary art through a museum-based learning and serve as tour guides in the museum. Site-specific art engages students in examining the social, functional, historical, and aesthetic aspects of neighborhoods. Site-specific art motivates students to work together and create new projects. A video DVD will be produced to document the entire process from conceptualization to execution. This project was funded in 2007-2008 and was so successful that it is being funded again.
