Associate Professor Filippo Tagliati in the Visual Arts department attended an awards ceremony on September 20th for the Frey Foundation’s Artist Seed Grants, where he and his collaborative team were awarded a $2,000 grant to support their submission into this year’s competition. The grants were awarded to artists who “demonstrated both financial need and artistic merit.”
