The Joyce Foundation presents a free, virtual panel that will convene all four 2021 artist awardees for the first time to discuss their projects: four impactful collaborations spanning the visual, performing, and multidisciplinary arts that engage diverse communities in Chicago, Cleveland, and Milwaukee. Lynden is proud to be included, for its project with Daniel Minter, among the 2021 awardees. The other awardees include Sydney Chatman with Congo Square Theatre Company (Chicago); SANTIAGO X with Chicago Public Art Group (Chicago), and Kameelah Janan Rasheed with FRONT International (Cleveland). The panel will be moderated by Heinz Endowments Arts and Culture Program Officer Shaunda McDill, and will explore timely issues and themes addressed in this year's projects, including intracommunal and state-sanctioned violence against women, identity and cultural sustainability, and healing through community, art, and nature.

The Joyce Awards is the only regional program dedicated to supporting artists of color in major Great Lakes cities. Since its inception in 2003, the competition has awarded more than $3.7 million to commission 72 new works and collaborations between emerging and mid-career artists of color and arts and community organizations in six Great Lakes cities: Chicago, Cleveland, Detroit, Indianapolis, Milwaukee, and Minneapolis-St. Paul.
