I received good news last week. The Puffin Foundation awarded me grant funding for my future exhibit; I Pledge Allegiance: Concepts of Patriotism, Division and Unity. This will be exhibited at the Littman Gallery for 8 weeks in September/October of 2020.
The Puffin Foundation is an organization located in Teaneck, New Jersey. Founded in 1983 by Perry Rosenstein, this foundation seeks to support the arts which inform the public on topics such as the “physical environment, social justice, civil rights and other contemporary issues facing the country (and the Planet), that some organizations might hesitate to fund.” The foundation also strives to support the emerging artist rather than established artist. puffinfoundation.org
“I happen to be one of many people that believes in our country and our democracy,” said Rosenstein. “I feel that if democracy is threatened, we are all threatened.” -Wikipedia
