Congrats to DV Co—Founder & Director Frances Trombly, Agustina Woodgate, Christina Pettersson, and Yanira Collado for their Ellies.
Frances Trombly’s Ellie is to create large-scale works for two upcoming exhibitions that examine woven textiles and their relationship to painting.
Agustina Woodgate’s Ellie is for creating a site-specific score and music video for a car wash that provides a theater-like experience for drivers while questioning the future of these businesses in an era of self-driving cars.
Christina Pettersson’s Ellie is for a large-scale drawing of the Cutler Fossil Site, one of the oldest known site of Paleolithic human presence south of Lake Okeechobee, that captures the jaguars, mammoths and mastodons that roamed there.
Yanira Collado’s Ellie is for preserving the etymologies of five sacred narratives from the Dominican Republic by recording and sharing these oral traditions as told by Dominicans in South Florida and the island of Hispañola.
