$10,000 toward The Deities Must be Made to Laugh, Works 1971–1977, an exhibition on the sculptor with accompanying catalogue, organized by museum director Sabine Folie. Unorthodox in both form and material, much of Morton’s work falls between the disciplines of painting and sculpture. Creating her own private language of individual elements, Morton often used interchangeable materials intended to be displayed in varying arrangements. (Additional grant reviewed and funded in the summer of 2008 between grant review cycles).
