RUPCO AWARDS GRANT TO ARTIST RESIDENT
Meet Ben Eichert, a photographer and one of the winners of our recent competition to support two Lace Mill artists with a grant of $1,000 for their artistic endeavors. Ben said, "A dream of mine has always been to publish a book of my most meaningful photography along with my poetry. This grant will help me move forward with this dream. Thank you for this opportunity." Congrats and good luck, Ben!
We received 21 applications that were carefully considered by a volunteer panel of local artists, including Richard Frumess, Anne Bailey, Frank Waters, Lara Giordano and Adrielle Farr.
Big thank you to the National Equity Fund, whose generous contribution made this program possible.
