VCCA Fellow Ellen Driscoll Awarded Rhode Island Fellowship
Ellen Driscoll, head of the sculpture department at Rhode Island School of Design and a VCCA Fellow, was named as one of three visual artists to receive the prestigious MacColl Johnson Fellowship from the Rhode Island Foundation. The $25,000 grant is one of the largest no-strings awards to artists in the country. It is intended 'to fund an artist's vision or voice', and has been awarded on a three-year cycle since 2005 to composers, writers and visual artists. Congratulations, Ellen!
