Many of you have been following our canoe journey, and some know about the big grant we received from the Oregon Community Foundation to have a Plateau Indian artist put Indian art on Main Street in Joseph.
That one is a long process. We are recruiting artists now–deadline January 15–for a first selection of three artists, who will each be given $1,000 and a month to develop proposals.
