Tyler Alumni Receives Leeway Grant

Author: Anonymous

Grants are one of the greatest resources for artists with a vision. Recently, a Tyler Alumna was the recipient of the Leeway Grant, a source of funds that provides a variety of awards to artists working towards social change in their practice. The Leeway Foundation seeks to amplify marginalized voices in art, providing creators with resources to accomplish their goals and participate in the making of a space in our culture for the unheard. Barbara Baur, a Tyler Alumna, was recently named as one of the recipients of the Leeway Foundation Art and Change Grant. Baur is a multi-faceted artist and instructor at Tyler.
