Grass Stains is a site-specific performance initiative by the Pioneer Winter Collective. Its inception is thanks in large part to a Knight Arts Challenge Grant from the John and James L.

All Grass Stains performances by these artists are free and open to the public. Grass Stains seeks to help professionals push the boundaries of their practice, make their work accessible to a wider audience, and create work that is socially and culturally relevant to their community.
