PLAYA recently received support from the Oregon Cultural Trust and Oregon Arts Commission for our ongoing programs. The Oregon Cultural award of $21,736 will support a new and growing collaboration with the High Desert Museum, in which PLAYA artists and scientists present at the Museum in Bend. Residents will also be featured in an annual fall exhibition at the Museum, with a section for scientists to display research, collections, and other outcomes of their residencies. The Oregon Arts Commission grant of $6,590 will support FY 2019 operating costs, always a boon to PLAYA and the fellowship residencies we offer to artists and scientists in our unique location in the Oregon Outback.
