accessCeramics receives NEA grant
We're pleased to announce that accessCeramics has been awarded a 2009 National Endowment for the Arts - Access to Artistic Excellence grant in the Visual Arts category. The $10,000 award will support the continued expansion of accessCeramics as well as the introduction of master artists' works into the collection over the 2009/10 academic year.
According to the Arts Endowment website, the Access to Artistic Excellence grant program "encourages and supports artistic creativity, preserves our diverse cultural heritage, and makes the arts more widely available in communities throughout the country." In other words, a great fit for accessCeramics and specifically our goal to make images of high quality contemporary ceramic art widely available to the arts education community.
Thanks to the Arts Endowment and a hearty kudos to the accessCeramics team!
