About the Artist Team
Simon Donovan and Ben Olmstead currently hail from Tucson where they have many separate and collaborative projects, and are currently working the Modern Streetcar project there. Mr. Olmstead has a B.F.A. from Universityof Arizona and is a Medici Scholar. Mr. Donovan has a B.F.A from the Rhode Island School of Design and an M.F.A from the Transart Institute in Austria. A selection panel chose the artist team because they show in their past projects a sensitivity to scale, materials, and content in site specific ways while maintaining strong artwork.
