The Alexa Rose Foundation received 280 applications this spring for grant funding totaling $1,000,000 in requests.  The proposals were rich with opportunities for the exploration of creative practice.  With only $150,000 in total funding available, the competition was significant.

After a rigorous month-long review by panels of local artists, 67 individuals were awarded grants of up to $5,000.  Grants were awarded to emerging, mid-career and established visual, literary and performing artists, and filmmakers throughout the community.  The grants will fund learning opportunities, equipment and supplies, production costs, and paid time to create.
