I have a wonderful announcement! Just found out that I have been selected as:
“Silicon Valley Artist Laureate” for this year! This is an amazing honor and I am thrilled beyond words to be included with 140 artists that have been recognized in the 25 years of this program.
This program is funded by Silicon Valley Creates and the receipt of this award is to help support my work as an artist.
I was selected in the “Off Stage” category, which essentially is recognizing my achievements in composition and arranging for ensembles.
Other categories include “On Stage” (performing of various kinds: music, acting, etc.), “On the Wall” (visual art of various kinds: painting, installations, etc.), “Off the Wall” (sculpture, etc.), and also an award for young/up-and-coming artists.
I can’t thank Silicon Valley Creates enough for selecting me for this unbelievable honor; their support of the arts in Silicon Valley is to be applauded!
