granted!



i'll cut to the chase - i got word yesterday that i won a Rasmuson Project Grant!

i find it difficult to articulate how honored i am to be recognized by the Rasmuson Foundation. their commitment to Alaskan art, culture, and community is monumental, and i'm humbled to be acknowledged by them.

now, my Dalton project can get some serious legs. it's life of fits and starts will be replaced by a serious focus and priority. my desire is stoked even more by this grant, and the limiters of access and economics are being abated considerably.

the pressure of expectation is a wonderful feeling. thank you to the Rasmuson Foundation for affording me the opportunity to move forward with a more accelerated conviction.

Congratulations!
I got one of the project awards last year---used it to buy art supplies for 3 big shows---it made all the difference in my art production.

Best of luck on your project!
E.
