Jared Fortunato Photography Awarded WeHo Arts Commission Grant

I’m inspired by place. This place. My place, the place I call home. Building on my “Hollywood” project, I submitted a proposal to the West Hollywood Arts Commission for a grant to explore the people and places of West Hollywood. And today, I was informed the arts council approved my project. So honored! When I moved here to West Hollywood four years ago, little did I imagine that one day the city leaders would be discussing the merits of my work? I’m humbled. Inspired. And like I said in my project statement, so grateful I get to call this place home.

Stay tuned for exhibition details, and for ways to get involved. Let’s celebrate this community.

Intersections @ Gallery 625 | Opening Reception May 8th 2018

Please join three other amazing artists and me as we celebrate the "Intersections" that brought us together as artists and as friends. This event is a special moment for all of us. We've spent the last year collaborating through the online MFA program at the Academy of Art University. We've become close through the process, and yet never met "face to face." If you're in San Francisco that night, I'd love for you to join me as I meet my old friends for the first time.

 


 

"Portrait of Hollywood" featured in the latest edition of Art Muzeo Magazine, available for download or purchase. Join me and the other fantastic artists at Art Muzeo's launch party, February 4th. Click here for ticket and event information. Hope to see you there.

 

Honored that images from Transcriptions are featured in "72 Hour Hold," opening at Art Share LA in Los Angeles.
