Congratulations to ITP Alumna Tirtza Even for being one of 10 artists in the Chicago area who will receive $25,000 from 3Arts.

From the website:

The Chicago grantmaking organization 3Arts announced today that it will award $330,000 to nearly one hundred artists at a ceremony that will take place at the Mid-America Club, on November 6. In recognition of Chicago-based women artists, artists of color, and artists with disabilities working in the performing, teaching, and visual arts sectors, the nonprofit has selected ten artists who will receive $25,000: Alejandro T. Acierto, Tirtza Even, Ayriole Frost, Mabel Kwan, Will Liverman, Tara Mallen, Teresa McNeal, Ginger Lane Meida, Marcela Muñoz, and Juan-Carlos Perez. In addition, eighty-three artists were named as recipients of $1,000 grants as part of 3Arts’s new Make a Wave program, a peer-to-peer giving initiative for which awardees from last year were able to choose this year’s honorees.
