I also just found out I have been awarded a couple of artist residencies, which means cultural centers in different states will be giving me room and board and general support as I create my dress projects for those states. I am headed to Wyoming in July thanks to the Jentel foundation, and then I am off to an island in Maine in September thanks to the MacNamara foundation. So preparing all of those applications paid off!
