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.

The installation was inspired by the building's placement in Tidwell Park combined with the idea of community as a temple for growth, stability, and support. A sculptural brushed aluminum tree grows upward along the brick wall in the building's lobby. The tree spreads out into rings that encompass vine-like branches laden with layers of cascading leaves. Installed on the wall above the glass entrance doors are ten graphic panels depicting natural scenes of the community, accompanied by Herman Melville’s quote, “We cannot live only for ourselves. A thousand fibers connect us with our fellow men.” This passage was chosen by members of the community.
