GBCA Launches Inaugural Year of Project-Based Funding Program
Posted 04.22.14 by MICA Communications
The Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance (GBCA) has announced 13 artists for its inaugural Rubys Artist Project Grants, including five members of the MICA community. Awards from $2,000 to $10,000 were awarded to support artists' diverse and creative projects within their field.
The Rubys are project-based funding for emerging and established Baltimore-regional artists for the creation of innovative and bold endeavors that will have significant impact for the artist and on the community-at-large. The grants support the local creative community of performing, visual, media and literary artists.
The Rubys were established in 2013 by GBCA, with the vision and start-up funding from the Robert W. Deutsch Foundation, to provide meaningful support to individual artists as well as enrich the arts and broader community of Baltimore and the five surrounding counties.
The spring 2014 Rubys grantees (with MICA connections bolded), selected by a jury, are:
Carla Brown (exhibitions office manager)
Graham Coreil-Allen '10 (faculty, Mount Royal School of Art)
Eric Dyer '04 (faculty, Mount Royal School of Art)
Matthew Porterfield (faculty)
Olivia Robinson '98 (faculty, fiber)
