Grant Amount


The funds will support for a solo invitational exhibition for April-June 2024 at the Clay Art Center in Port Chester, NY.  I plan to construct a new installation consisting of a free-standing structure, ceramic birds, a video, and interviews of African Americans that provide accounts of their personal, working conditions, and community experiences during civil unrest and social injustice over their life span.
