Grantee Name: Karen Fiorito
Project Name: Got Drought?
Grant Location: San Francisco, California
Funding Partner: A Well Fed World
Project Description: Got Drought? is a public art project and social media campaign aimed at raising people’s awareness about how much water it takes to produce meat and dairy as opposed to a plant-based diet. Los Angeles-based artists Karen Fiorito and Alex Arinsberg teamed together to design and implement a series of billboards about the relationship between water, pollution and diet, with an emphasis on the drought in California. Funds from this grant will be used to continue the recycling of these billboards to different cities in California and/or a digital billboard campaign.
