RadMaps uses citizen science-style data collection, mapping, public events, creative thinking and multimedia installation to address radioactive contamination in our environment. Artist-led workshops near radioactive “hot spots” will lead to a large-scale installation and interactive website that uses data collection and collective creative responses to bridge science and art.
Kelley Meister is a fiscal year 2019 recipient of an Artist Initiative grant and a 2021 Creative Support grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. RadMaps is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund. This project is also supported by a grant from the Jerome Foundation. For this project, Kelley Meister was awarded residencies at the Camargo Foundation and the Anderson Center for Interdisciplinary Studies at Tower View.
