DCCAH 2008 Young Artist Program Awardee
|| 12/1/2007 || 6:33 pm || Comments Off on DCCAH 2008 Young Artist Program Awardee || ||

exerpt from the award letter by DCCAH executive director Anthony Gittens

Yesterday I receieved this great news in the mail! I submitted the Young Artist Program grant proposal in September and it turns out that the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities liked proposal enough to grant me $2,500 to have an exhibition next year. I won this award in 2006, and had an exhibition/installation in my neighborhood playground, and donated 8 maps to the Library of Congress Geography & Mapping Division. I have two ideas for what I’d like to do for this year. I’ll definitely be posting updates as they come.

Here is the official description of the award from the DCCAH website:

The Young Artist Grant Program is an initiative which offers grants of up to $2,500 to individual artists between the ages of 18 and 30, is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts’ Challenge America program. The Challenge America Program provides state arts agencies with funds to support activities that visibly demonstrate the benefits the arts bring to their citizens. The Young Artist Grant Program is an investment in the city’s future that will develop a new generation of arts leadership in the District of Columbia.

Below is the project description that I submitted for the grant:

In October I submitted a proposal to the DC Commission on the Arts & Humanities for $2470 to print out & frame 8 maps that represent one location in the 8 Wards of DC. Today I received the official word from the DCCAH that my proposal was accepted!!

The Everywhere Man Award
|| 12/4/2005 || 12:09 am || Comments Off on The Everywhere Man Award || ||

Tonight I went to the 2005 Washington Peace Center Awards ceremony. Beginning as a potluck the event featured Amy Goodman and Damu Smith and they each received awards for their dedication to peace. At the end of the event awards were given out to about 50 people or so, and I won the “The Everywhere Man Award,” and as a dedicated geographer, I must say its one of the best honors I’ve been bestowed.
