Contemporary Artists Presents
Sarasota - Women Contemporary Artists held its annual End of the
Year Party where they presented financial awards to area college
women completing their sophomore year. The objective of the annual
award is to provide assistance and recognition to women who have
made a commitment to obtain a degree in Fine Arts versus graphic,
illustration or animation arts. Fine Art majors focus on developing
their own unique vehicle for creating art versus creating work that
is directed by outside criteria. The funds awarded may be used in
any way the student sees fit, assisting with the purchase of materials,
equipment or travel to help them enhance their learning experiences.

grant in FANs 10-year history, for the production of Macandal.

the Carnival Center for the Performing Arts. The $50,000 Knight
New Work Award is the first of two such awards, totaling $100,000.
Macandal won over FAN and the advisory panel with its high artistic
merit and its broad appeal within the Miami-Dade population. The
presentation was made at FANs annual awards luncheon on May
8 at the Radisson Miami Hotel. Adding more glitter to the Miami-Dade
arts scene, 27 additional FAN grantees were also announced, making
this years pool one of the largest in FAN history at $270,000.
In 2008, the second $50,000 Knight New Work grant will be awarded
after another selection process.

with Elizabeth Edelson, a dance/movement therapist in Tampa. Though
he always had a strong interest in dance, he was hesitant to begin
studying due to his quadriplegia and the unknown of what mixed-mobility
dance was all about. Learn
