Jack O’Hearn
Grants for Visual Artists

Jack O’Hearn is interested in material objects and their affect on one’s memory and imagination. He writes, “my work is inspired by my fascination with history, extreme poverty, childhood fantasies, & tales of life beyond the periphery. These subjects share a common link in that they all exist beyond my present experience and therefore act as a source of wonder. My intention is to materialize the workings of my imagination into a physical environment in order to make sense of the self and the cultural conditioning it involves.” (Excerpt from grant proposal.)

Harpo Foundation is pleased to provide Mr. O’Hearn with a direct artist grant to assist his production and development of new work.
