Antelope Valley Art Outpost (Outpost) is a creative placemaking project that leverages community and cultural assets to create artist-driven projects that support regional vitality. The project focuses on the unincorporated communities of Littlerock and Sun Village. Two artist-in-residences, Heidi Duckler Dance Theater and Robin Rosenthal were selected to work with local residents to develop creative projects and programs that activated underutilized sites in each community. Projects include community dance workshops and performances, a documentary filmmaking club and film festival. Phase 3 addresses the longevity and sustainability of arts and culture in the Antelope Valley in terms of funding, policy and artists support working with Arts for LA, artist Robin Rosenthal and Larissa Nickels. The project is founded by 0,000 in grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the California Arts Council and the Fifth District Civic Art Pooled Fund. To date, additional in-kind contributions include ,000 from Lancaster Museum of Art and History and ,000 from Metabolic Studios.
