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.

Gordon Huether’s commission for the Midwest Police Station is comprised of both exterior and interior elements. For the interior of the station, he created a digitally altered photo series using 35 historical images from the Houston Police Department’s archives, printed on aluminum. These photos are akin to contemporary, colorful paintings and are very relevant to the officers and staff who use the building on a daily basis. A 20-foot tall sculpture composed of proud, vertical forms at the exterior entry represents the values of the Houston Police Department through the use of the statement Order through Law, Justice with Mercy. The sculpture speaks not only to the purpose of the facility, but also creates a visual dialogue with the architecture by complementing the façade.
