Congratulations to Intermedia alumnus Anthony Hudson who was awarded a $20,000 National Artist Fellowship through the Native Arts Cultures Foundation. Hudson was one of 20 artists awarded a 2018 National Artist Fellowship.
Hudson (Grand Ronde) is a multidisciplinary artist, writer, performer, and filmmaker. He is perhaps best known as "drag clown" Carla Rossi, "an immortal trickster whose attempts at realness almost always result in fantastic failure."
From the Foundation's website:
The Native Arts and Cultures Foundation National Artist Fellowship includes an unrestricted monetary award of $20,000 that provides support for Native artists to explore, develop and experiment with original and existing projects. Fellows also work with their communities and share their culture in numerous ways. Fellowships are made possible with additional support from the Ford Foundation, the Second Sister Foundation, the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, and the philanthropy of arts patrons nationwide.
