Anonymous Was A Woman is an unrestricted grant of $25,000 that enables women artists, over 45 years of age and at a critical juncture in their lives or careers, to continue to grow and pursue their work. The Award is given in recognition of an artist's accomplishments, artistic growth and the quality of her work.  It is not need-based.

The name of the grant program, Anonymous Was A Woman, refers to a line in Virginia Wolf’s A Room of One’s Own. As the name implies, nominators and those associated with the program are unnamed. The award was begun in 1996 in response to the decision of the National Endowment of the Arts to cease support of individual artists.

Heard on Univision

Univision's two main talking news heads (Jorge Ramos and Maria Elena Salinas - both of whom are fair of hair, light of skin and green-eyed) are having fun with some ignorant idiots who are taking issue with Disney because they have debuted a "Latina princess" named Sofia, who is white with blue eyes.

DMV collectors recognized

Ben and Gisela Huberman are not only two of the DMV's top art collectors, but as a fellow Cuban-American, Ben is obviously a kindred spirit, a brilliant mind and an accomplished scientist. His amazing wife Gisela is a visionary genius, with the sort of natural intelligence that most of us can only dream about.

Both he and his lovely wife Gisela are HUGE supporters of DMV area artists, avid art fair and gallery aficionados, and owners of one of the best art collections in the world.

I am proud to be in their collection (multiple times) and happy to see them recognized in the current issue of American Style magazine.
