The Awesome Foundation of Orlando - grant awarded to "The Stack on French" Public Art as Service project by Jennifer Lindquist
A $1000 grant from the  Awesome Foundation of Orlando made this project possible. This venture would have never started without this 'seed money'.

It was the architectural ‘stack’ feature jutting through the roof of a gritty little  micro-strip mall building (circa 1955) in Sanford, Florida that inspired Jennifer Lindquist to develop this public art project. The 'stack' with its characteristic mid-century shape was calling for an interesting art mural that, not some commercial signage. 

The building sits on the very busy US Route 17/92/French Avenue, an entry corridor to Sanford's historic downtown. With a high ratio of strip mall buildings and a cacophony of commercial signage, Lindquist saw this one building as an opportunity for artistic intervention. She invited fellow artists, Ysabel Flores and Jasmine Ramos, to help transform the site into a mini public art gallery with hopes that it inspires future Public Art projects down this corridor. 

 A $1000 grant from the Awesome Foundation of Orlando has already been awarded to this project. This seed-money was instrumental in launching this project.

The Awesome Foundation grant and donations from a 
Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign  covers the costs of supplies, materials, prep-work, scaffolding and a $200 stipend for each of the featured artists.
