UPDATE: Last April, I posted here about a travel grant for Bay Area artists. Almost a year later, in collaboration with The Present Group, we’ve produced The Present Prize, a new yearly grant that leverages the profit margin from web-hosting services to support artists. The focus of the grant will change from year to year, but this year’s travel grant is being voted on now. You can view the 9 nominees here or start voting.

Critical observations on the cultural landscape; musings in and on the field; explorations on the road.
