This morning in Brooklyn, Fort Greene Park’s Prison Ship Martyrs Monument received an update, when two New York artists affixed an unauthorized four-foot-high bust of Edward Snowden and accompanying name plate to the Revolutionary War monument. The bust, which took a collaborating LA-based sculptor six months and several thousand of the artists’ dollars to complete, can be removed without damaging the monument. However, the artists—who staged the sculptural intervention to draw parallels between the U.S.’s fight to establish the fourth amendment and Snowden’s attempts to uphold it—are prepared to make more Snowden busts.

Richard Phillips—whose pop culture-based portraits have hung in MoMA, the Whitney, and the Tate Modern—has been chosen to join Dallas Contemporary’s board of directors, embodying the museum’s aim to put artists first by seeking collaborators outside of Dallas. (via Artforum)
As part of a total of $300,000 that the Leonore Annenberg Foundation Fellowship Fund for the Performing and Visual Arts has awarded to five emerging artists across a variety of disciplines, artist Caitlin Cherry—who had a solo exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum in 2013—will receive a one-year grant of $50,000. This round of gifts brings the Fund’s paid or promised grants to over $5 million over the past eight years. (via the New York Times)
