Di Rosa Center receives NEH grant

(June 6, 2019)

The di Rosa Center for Contemporary Art has been awarded a $10,000 Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). This is the first NEH grant that di Rosa has been awarded.

The grant will allow di Rosa to restore Wind House, an outdoor kinetic sculpture by Sebastopol-based artist Ned Kahn, an environmental artist and sculptor known for his work harnessing natural elements such as fire and light, fog, sand, water and wind, augmenting visibility and creating new ways to experience the world.

Ironically, the wind-animated sculpture, which creates a gossamer suggestion of a building completely permeated by the atmosphere, was damaged by the 2017 Northern California wildfires.
