In late December, the results were announced for the Arts & Science Council Regional Artist Project Grants for Mecklenburg and surrounding counties. The 2016 recipients, 31 in all, represent emerging and established artists across diverse disciplines. Grants are made with the support of the North Carolina Arts Council and the Blumenthal Emerging Artist Endowment.
The grant provides funds – up to $2000 per person – for individuals and groups of unincorporated artists to pursue projects that further enhance their artistic development by attending a professional development experience or purchasing/renting a piece of equipment.
The 31 recipients were selected from 114 applicants by 11 regional panelists. Below you will find the list of visual art and film recipients. For the full list, visit the ASC’s website.
