(Blowing Rock, NC) -BRAHM (Blowing Rock Art & History Museum) has received a $12,400 Large Grant from North Carolina Humanities.
“We are grateful to be one of the organizations North Carolina Humanities selected for this grant funding, it is an honor to be part of the 2021 NC Humanities large grants cohort.” said Willard Watson, BRAHM programs director, and Jagged Path project manager.
This important funding will support BRAHM’s upcoming exhibit the Jagged Path: the African Diaspora in Western North Carolina in Craft, Music, and Dance. The funds will be used to hire two contracted field workers to interview artists, musicians, and dancers in WNC as well as produce a hardcover exhibit catalog. This funding is important because it will allow us to address the lack of scholarship around the contributions African Americans have made in the development of the culture of Western North Carolina.
This project was made possible by a grant from North Carolina Humanities, a statewide nonprofit and affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
