Do Palma Awarded Visual Arts Fellowship

"It was an immense honor to be awarded a Visual Arts Fellowship by the Wyoming Arts Council! Lucky me.  Congratulations to the other winners, Suzanne Morlock and Aaron Wilson.  And thank you to the jurors,  Marji Vecchio, Sean Miller and Julie Muniz."  Do Palma (2nd from right)

Visual Arts fellowships are awards of merit, based on the artist’s portfolio, honoring the work of Wyoming visual artists whose work reflects serious and exceptional investigation, juried by noted artists from outside the state.
Recipients of the visual arts fellowships receive a cash award and exhibit their work in the Wyoming Arts Council Biennial Exhibit, held every two years at a major visual arts institution in state.
Congratulations, Do!
