Recipient: Kate Warren | Art 120

Art 120 is a local non-profit organization in Chattanooga that was launched to enrich Chattanooga and the surrounding community through the creation, education, and celebration of art.

The organization put together several series of art bike workshops, giving students the opportunity to present a concept in front of their peers, safely use power tools, measure and cut steel beams, and learn how to weld properly from an experienced professional. The kids came up with some fantastic ideas and produced four really cool art bikes: a car, bike, or wheeled contraption that has had its appearance modified to take the form of art. The UNFoundation funded them to take thirteen young minds from Chattanooga to the Mini Maker Faire in Atlanta to show off their creations. They’ll be exposed to over 7,500 makers and guests, and they’ll have the opportunity to see a variety of possibilities for their future.
