How many of you have applied for grants? Some of you may remember that I am applying for a local grant to coordinate the AWE project – Artists Windows Exhibit. It was quite a long process putting together a resume (that I should have done years ago). I was surprised that it didn’t sound half-bad. And then writing my very first grant application.

I have put together quite a but of supporting materials including my own Artist Statement and Artist Biography. But also other artists were generous enough to let me include their bios – thank you!. I am going to be getting a letter of support from someone who works at building the creative economy. That is the last piece I need to put together.
Luckily, I have the press release from the current AWE project. And the maps that they have given out to show stores that were involved in the downtown celebration. And, last but not least, BEAUTIFUL photographs by Susan of 8 of the stores windows!! Susan is wanting to blog again and may respond to a nudge or two.
I thought you would enjoy seeing another window from our local exhibits. I would love to hear about your experiences – whether exhibits or the rest of life!

Hi Julie, I will write more about the application and project tomorrow. I allowed myself one day off from work to do the World Card Day so I wanted to get as much in as possible. Good luck with your Blog Action Day project!
Hi Bobbie, I will write more tomorrow (Thursday) about the project and grant … it will not be tons of money … but at least a little for all the work I do do. I am glad you are interested!

I really like the window you shared this evening. I can see why you are hoping to turn this wonderful work into a grant proposal, which I truly hope you will get accepted. I am taking this opportunity to let your respondents and visitors know about my website and blog about the Vietnam War era draft and its reverberations going backwards to World War II and forward to the Iraq War. I would greatly appreciate anyone inspired to visit at http://www.vietnamwardraftstories.com/blog to read the stories of men and women who were affected by that draft – including our very own DIANE CLANCY!!! I look forward to any visitors and comments they may make. Thanks, Tom Weiner
