Raising the Foundation-a DFOL Fundraising Event

On Saturday, March 10th, 2012, Duvall Friends of the Library and our Presenting Sponsors, the Snoqualmie Tribe and Whirlwind Services are proud to feature an evening with nationally-acclaimed artist and sculptor, John Grade, whose sculpture will be housed in the new Duvall Public Library. Abe Beeson from KPLU-FM will be there to spin some great tunes for this exciting, one-time event!

About John Grade: 

John Grade’s sculptures, documentary photographs and videos have been exhibited in galleries and museums nationwide and in Europe. In 2011, he received the prestigious Arlene Schnitzer Prize at the Portland Art Museum. The previous year, he had won the coveted Willard L. Metcalf Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters in New York. This prize, like the Arlene Schnitzer Prize, is bestowed upon a young artist whose work exhibits “great promise”. Grade has also earned several other grants and awards, including two 4Culture Special Projects Grants, a Washington State Arts commission, an Artist Trust Foundation Fellowship, an Andy Warhol Foundation Award, and a Tiffany Foundation Award. He has exhibited extensively in galleries and museums nationwide and his work has been featured in Art in America, Sculpture, Boston Globe, Oregonian, Seattle Times, and on NPR’s All Things Considered.
