I have been awarded a FY 2017 Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. One of the driving forces behind the decision to relocate to the state of Minnesota was its reputation as an ardent supporter of the arts. The opportunity could not have come at a better time and I am so grateful. The grant will allow me to grow both my artistic and professional practice as I prepare new work for an exhibition this fall. Stay tuned!

Maria Rose Adams is a fiscal year 2017 recipient of an Artist Initiative Grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board. This activity is made possible by the voters of Minnesota through a grant from the Minnesota State Arts Board, thanks to a legislative appropriation from the arts and cultural heritage fund.



You can find my work along with that of ceramicist Jeff Blandford at the brand new MSU Union Art Gallery now through January 27th. The space celebrates the work of alumni from the Michigan State University Department of Art, Art History, & Design.
