Colossal is designed to serve as an online gallery of visually spectacular artwork, while seeking to educate and inform rather than criticize or interpret. Through this effort, Colossal is used as inspiration and instruction in classrooms across the arts and sciences from grade school through graduate school. Via our website, newsletters, and social media impressions, Colossal reaches an estimated 10 million monthly readers.
In a world brimming with information overload, environmental catastrophe, capitalism run amok, and social injustice, we curate Colossal to focus on the most positive, diverse, and impactful stories around the issues we care about most. It is our intent to amplify the voices of artists working toward a more equitable and environmentally-friendly future by utilizing innovation, unexpected materials, humor, spectacle, and vast reserves of skill and hope.
Colossal was founded in 2010 by writer and curator Christopher Jobson. Over the last decade we have been honored with accolades by The National Endowment for the Arts, TED, and PBS Art21. Colossal won the UTNE Media Award for Arts Coverage and has been nominated for a Webby.
