Artpace has given $5000 in travel grants to San Antonio-based artists Ruth Buentello, Naomi Wanjiku, and Mark Hogensen. Buentello will head to Italy and France to study the work of Niki de Saint Phalle as inspiration for her own community murals. Wanjiku will travel back to her native Kenya to immerse herself in Jua Kali, an informal recycling program that re-purposes recyclables as art. Hogensen will roadtrip to East Texas where he will photograph and sketch urban and natural landscapes.
