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.

Houston Arts Alliance’s inaugural dinner fundraiser featured Broadway, film and television icon Rita Moreno telling her story in words and song for an unforgettable evening.
Ms. Moreno, who received the Screen Actors Guild Lifetime Achievement Award in January, belongs to an elite group of only eight living performers who have won entertainment’s grand slam of the industry's most prestigious awards: The Oscar (West Side Story), The Emmy (actually, two Emmys: The Muppet Show and The Rockford Files), The Tony (The Ritz) and The Grammy (The Electric Company Album). She has served on The National Endowment for the Arts and as a Commissioner for The President’s White House Fellowships. She has also served as a member of The President’s Committee on the Arts and Humanities. Ms. Moreno has been awarded both The Presidential Medal of Freedom (the highest honor bestowed upon a civilian) and The National Medal of Arts.
Proceeds from An Intimate Evening with Rita Moreno supported the innovative programs and services that HAA provides the Houston region.
