Documents life growing up in Venice, CA and the powerful insights that come from street smarts in a multimedia installation of paintings, audio, video, social media engagement, the Venice Tribute Wall, and written biographies. Awarded a grant for an Individual Artist through the Carl Jacobs Foundation and a Certificate of Appreciation from the City of Los Angeles.
The project was more than two years in the making and involved over 300 participants, each of whom was chosen to convey different perspectives and a broad spectrum of experiences. Like Chase, these subjects grew up and attended school in Venice. Chase worked in an ongoing collaboration with each individual to create painted biographical portraits, using her artistic skills to be in service to the community of Venice.
The West of Lincoln Project was awarded a Certificate of Appreciation from the City of Los Angeles, and grant recipient from The Carl Jacobs Foundation.
