The Individual Artist Grant Folk Arts Fellowship (IAGFAF) supports master artists in their efforts to preserve an artistic tradition—as a living legacy for their community—by helping them to pass their knowledge and skills on to a qualified and competent apprentice(s). This grant category enables master artists and (where appropriate) apprentices to 1) set aside time for intensive teaching and learning of the tradition and/or 2) purchase materials for the work at hand. Applications for these grants are reviewed by an external, impartial peer review panel and in recognition of exemplary artistic merit within a traditional art form.

Gene Hester and Liz Conces Spencer, Metamorphosis, 2010. Glass and metal. Flores Neighborhood Library, 110 North Milby Street.
Funding Source: Percent for Art – City of Houston General Services Department and Houston Public Library
Commissioned by Houston Arts Alliance (HAA) on behalf of Houston Public Library, Metamorphosis consists of two glass artworks designed to fill niches on the north and west sides of the library. The brilliant shades of fused glass, mounted onto curved metal substrates, reflect the culture of Houston’s Second Ward and its citizens through the use of traditional imagery, such as serapes and flowers, combined with musical notes and books. The artwork evokes such themes such as the voice of the people, new ideas, community, attainment of knowledge and personal power.
Gene Hester and Liz Conces Spencer are local artists who have collaborated on several art projects, including a piece for Cool Globes, a public art exhibition designed to raise awareness of solutions to climate change.
