Jade Williams Receives One State Artist Grant

September 1, 2020

Alumna Jade Williams (BFA in Sculpture 2016) has received a One State Artist Grant from Arts Alliance Illinois for her project Black Purple Bloom. Her traveling memorial tower was created to honor the Black Womxn who have lost their lives to police brutality. Through the collaborative efforts of her in-house team and workshop participants across the state, handmade commemorative blooms are being used to raise awareness for victims whose cases are not getting adequate coverage.
