Visual artist and painter Jane Booth will use Inspiration funds to finish a welding/machine shop adjacent to her art studio, for the creation of small and large scale sculptures. The grant helps pay for relocating heavy equipment and a large collection of metal materials from a location 20 miles away, installing the equipment, getting a refresher course on welding skills and safety from a professional welder/machinist, and purchasing leathers, gloves, and a helmet for welding. Jane’s long-range goal is to enter the public art arena, doing site specific commission work, and opening up a whole new world of possibilities, challenges, avenues, artists and patrons.
