$20,000 toward organizing and preserving the work and related documents of Robert Watts’ career. Working as an artist and an educator in the New York area and later in rural Pennsylvania, Watts was connected to the Neo-Dada, Pop Art, and Fluxus movements of the 1950s to the 1960s. His diverse body of sculptural works and kinetic constructions comments on American culture and often utilizes photographic representation of everyday objects, as well as new or experimental materials such as plastic or neon.
