FOUNDATION FOR CONTEMPORARY ARTS [grant]

The Foundation for Contemporary Arts has awarded großer Lauscher with an emergency grant to purchase equipment for exhibition. The organization has a rich history in its formation and through the dedication of artists supporting artists:

"In 1962 Jasper Johns, John Cage, Robert Rauschenberg, and other painters and sculptors came together to help Merce Cunningham and his dance company finance a proposed season on Broadway by arranging for a sale of their artworks. Their fund-raising efforts were so successful that there was money to spare, and when they asked Cunningham what he thought they should do with it, he replied, “We're all in the same boat--why don't you give it to other performing artists?""
