The Driehaus Foundation and 3Arts
In its new role as a granting entity, 3Arts awarded its first unrestricted gifts of $15,000 each to six actors, musicians and visual artists. They also supported larger ventures including the artist retreat at Ragdale and Chicago Artists Month. The Driehaus Foundation upped its ante to $15,000 (from $10,000 last year) to support two established artists and one promising “emerging” artist. When sales are slim and visions are big, the Driehaus and 3Arts are like dreams come true.
