Upending the familiar model of art grants going to big institutions, a new program from the San Diego Foundation aims money at individual artists’ ideas. If a museum or an orchestra wants in on the game, it must agree to house or support the selected artists’ work.

In our interview a couple of months ago with Felicia Shaw, the San Diego Foundation’s arts chief, Shaw said the called “The Far East.” Hudnall, executive director of the literary collective “So Say We All,” will work with the San Diego Writers Ink organization for the project.

• Artist Brandie Maddalena will make an interactive community installation featuring 60 cabinets containing audio recordings and artwork, each representing children’s memories. For the project, called “Jazz trumpeter Gilbert Castellanos will create a theatre production about San Diego’s jazz history and notable musicians, including military musicians. He’ll work with the San Diego Repertory Theatre on his “The Federal Jazz Project.”

• Another intriguing theater project will be kelly.bennett@voiceofsandiego.org or 619.325.0531.
