SDS faculty member, FRANK HOLLIDAY, was recently awarded grants from two prestigious foundations; the Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation and the Pollock-Krasner Foundation.
Adolph and Esther Gottlieb Foundation
The Foundation encourages artists who have dedicated their lives to developing their art, regardless of their level of commercial success. This program was conceived in order to recognize and support the serious, fully-committed artist. Successful applicants demonstrate that they have been working in a mature phase of their art for at least 20 years. Maturity is based on the level of intellectual, technical, and creative development maintained over this time period. Artists show that their primary involvement has been with their artistic goals, regardless of other personal or financial responsibilities. Artists work in the disciplines of painting, sculpture, or printmaking. Adolph Gottleib studied at Parsons in 1923.
Pollock Krasner Foundation
The Foundation’s Board of Directors has announced that SDS faculty member Frank Holliday has been chosen to receive the Pollock-Krasner Foundation grant for achievement in Painting. As part of the application process his work was viewed and selected by a distinguished committee of art professionals. This grant is given to artists to continue their work for one year. Frank’s year begins April 1, 2010.
