Nohl: Suitcase Export Fund Summer Cycle 2016

November 30, 2017

In the second half of its fourteenth cycle, the Fund made 6 awards, providing assistance with shipping and travel to 7 individual artists (some of them applying as groups traveling to shows outside Milwaukee). These artists--two of them Nohl Fellows—work in a range of media and their exhibitions took them to Glacier Bay, Alaska; Miami, Florida; Grand Rapids, Michigan; and New York, New York. Destinations abroad include Robertsbridge, England; and Naples, Italy.

Santiago Cucullu will head to Naples, Italy in early 2018 for a solo exhibition at Galleria Umberto Di Marino in Naples, Italy. Cucullu will be presenting new paintings, ceramics, and video.
