I received word from the Roxbury Arts Group that I am to receive partial funding for my project “Pennies, Band-Aids and Safety Pins:The Objects We Keep Hidden.” Thank you New York State Council on the Arts, the panel of judges and the Board of Directors at Roxbury! It’s extremely difficult these days for creatives to receive art funding because there is less money to be awarded and more people and organizations needing funds. Competition is at a record high. This is why I am extremely grateful to be awarded this money. It’s not just the money (but this is a huge part of it), it’s being validated for the art I create. Again, thank you all who made this possible.
Now let’s get this project started.
