Previous recipient Dan Bortz:

“I aim to build a Textile Screen-Printing Studio in Cleveland, Ohio, with the capability to create small to large scale screen prints on fabric, repeat pattern yardage and garment printing. It would not only serve as a personal studio but also after some development, I imagine it being a residency program. From extensive travel, I have connected with many artists I respect and admire. My overall goal is to create a space to experiment with exciting mediums for myself and others. Id like the ability to share the abundance of space and simultaneously bring national and international talent to Cleveland, an underdog city. This grant would go towards the initial start-up cost, such as the purchase of an exposure unit and the securing of a space to build this studio.”
