|Torukpa Agbegha describes her process on Oct. 30|
In October, Pyramid Atlantic rolled out the Denbo Fellowship Program, a new artistic scholarship founded by Beverly Denbo. Artistic director Gretchen Schermerhorn tailored the program for artists seeking to branch out into a new discipline by offering instruction as part of the package. Furthermore, "this one month fellowship is shorter than our 3 month residencies, appealing to people who may not be able to make that time commitment."
