Project Grant Award! Woo! by Elizabeth Phelps Meyer

I'm grateful to announce receipt of an $2,000 Project Grant through Arts Mid-Hudson 2018 NY State Decentralization Arts Grant Program for my upcoming exhibition at Art Centro, in Poughkeepsie, NY, in October, 2018: Each Day, Water. These funds will go toward the costs of building the display units to exhibit the water-filled vessels, and to bringing indigenous Water Protectors to lead weekend events at Art Centro such as music and ceremony. The grant award is garnered from tax-payer dollars, and I feel humbled and honored to receive this public assistance in presenting this work. I'll be doing some other fundraising in the coming months, as exhibition costs will exceed this grant award, but this is real boost and boon! I really look forward to participating in the community this exhibition will help galvanize and serve.
