Hello everyone and thank you for your patience. With our globe-trotting judges and some other issues, it took us (and by us, I mean me) a bit to get everything nailed down. A longer post will follow, but I just got off the phone from informing all the recipients. We’ll be awarding two $2,000 grants and two $1,000 grants.
$2,000 grant recipients:
Akosua Adoma Owusu
for her project Kwaku Ananse; this is Me Broni Ba (My White Baby), the piece she included in her application:
for her documentary Princess of Polka Dots, about artist Yayoi Kusama. Here’s the trailer:
$1,000 grant recipients:
for her project Replaceable. Here is the work sample she sent in, Do the Math
for her project, Miracle Maker, trailer below:
I’d like to once again thank our judges for the 2011 grant cycle: Andi Zeisler, Lee Jacobson, Natasha Mendonca (a previous recipient!), Marie Losier (also a previous recipient!), and Lori Barbero.
Thank you to everyone who entered this year! We’ll be in touch soon about the 2012 grant cycle.
