Sculptor Derek Weisberg, Takes Manhattan, And All Surrounding BoroughsRead More
An absolute surprise and incredible honor: I opened my mail last week to find an envelop containing a congratulatory letter informing me that I was a recipient of an Individual Grant from the Belle Foundation. This is an honor and grant that I did not apply for nor do I know anyone who nominated me or how I was even selected. The letter stated “You have been chosen for this award as an artist who is genuinely committed to his work, and as someone who demonstrates significant potential for continued growth and accomplishment in the field of the arts”
I am still in a slight state of shock and elation. THANK YOU Belle Foundation, for this honor and your support. . . . whoever you are!
