2015 VSA Minnesota/Jerome Foundation Emerging Artist Grant Recipient Exhibit

Artwork and writing by six Emerging Artists ~~ Renae Carpenter, Michael Cohn, Naomi Cohn, Chris Juhn, Romayne Kilde, and Liza Sylvestre ~~ will be featured the second VSA show at Homewood Studios.

The new artworks were created by artists with disabilities who received Emerging Artist Grants in 2015 from VSA Minnesota thanks to a long-standing grant from the Jerome Foundation. The grant program has been administered for 19 years by VSA Minnesota, the state organization on arts and disability. Artists will be at the reception to show and talk about their art, and the non-visual artists will present writing and performances they have created.
