Brattleboro Museum Micro Grants

BEAN Dinner results.....
We had a wonderful time at the BEAN Micro-Grant Dinner with over 65 attendees. It was a successful night raising over $750. which was split between two projects; One, for an organization which provides art classes to low income children and the other, for a middle school chorus to travel to an event. As attendees we had over 15 proposals to review before we could vote on the two we wanted the funds to go to.

The dinner from Elliot Street Cafe was great...actually I think they make the best brownies I have ever eaten!!!!

The band Red Heart the Ticker was awesome!! I am thinking about getting a CD to play in my studio while I paint. I really enjoyed watching the small children dancing with total abandon!

For information about the next BEAN Micro-Grant Dinner, and to area artists who would like to apply....check the Brattleboro Museum and Art Center's site here.

Alicia Hunsicker's art is undeniably beautiful. She is an expert at extracting the highly-detailed textures and fibers of the human body, bringing them from darkness, into the light, with a technical precision that rivals any modern-day master.
