$15,000 toward the symposium associated with Jesse Howard & Roger Brown: NOW READ ON, a traveling exhibition on the artists with accompanying catalogue, guest curated by Lisa Stone and Raechell Smith. Although both artists lived in very different cultures – Howard in his country home and studio in Fulton, MI and Brown in the urban mainstream of Chicago, IL – both were from the South, shared populist points of view, and freely addressed polarized issues in Amercia’s social, political, and religious culture.
