“Grade’s project, Piedmont Divide, will draw the public’s attention to water as a natural and often scarce resource through a temporary and non-invasive artistic intervention. His use of public sculptural art in combination with Emory University’s commitment to sustainability and strengths in science, health, social research, and public health will highlight important conversations between science and art and bring environmental awareness to students, the greater Atlanta community, and the Southeastern region.

Grade’s plan is to create a two-part sculptural installation that visually and conceptually links two of Emory’s most beloved and frequented locations – the Quadrangle and Lullwater Preserve. Using recycled and biodegradable materials derived from indigenous plants and trees, Grade will relate the form and construction method of the two installations to Emory’s research on West Nile Virus and world-wide water sustainability. His project will emphasize ways the arts can be used to draw attention to important environmental issues. All phases of the residency will have educational and outreach components.” (See Website Below)
