Local poet receives Rasmuson Fellowship
May 30, 2019
The Rasmuson Foundation was created in 1955 as an organization to support Alaskan arts and culture, health, and social services, among other things. They do this through a number of different ways, including offering financial support to Alaskans in the form of grants and fellowships. According to their website, since their founding the foundation has made $400,000,000 charitable payments.
Earlier this month, the Rasmuson Foundation brought together several creative Alaskan artists for their 2019 Individual Artist Awards.
One winner of this award was local poet Vivian Faith Prescott.
