A Blade of Grass is a New York City-based organization that supports socially engaged artists nationally through fellowships, public programs and efforts to expand the discourse around their work. Founded eight years ago as the term “socially engaged art” was coming into common usage, though without a lot of consensus around its exact meaning, A Blade of Grass has worked hard to create a context for the disparate practices that flourish at the intersection of art, community and social justice and to raise the visibility of this work in the art world and beyond.
