$10,000 to inventory and catalogue documents of art installations by the artist team Ericson and Ziegler, and to ultimately publish a monograph by curator Susan Harris. From the late 1970s until her death in 1995, Ericson and Ziegler created witty and stimulating installations and outdoor environments using everyday objects. These included, for example, Camouflaged History (1991), an entire Charleston, South Carolina house painted in a U.S. Military camouflage pattern with 72 commercial paint colors certified as historic by a local preservation group.
