Professor Marita Gootee Receives MAC Fellowship

July 12th, 2010 Comments Off on Professor Marita Gootee Receives MAC Fellowship

Professor Marita Gootee has been awarded a $4400 grant from the Mississippi Arts Commission [MAC].  Made possible by funding from the Mississippi Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, the grant will allow Gootee to further explore her Poolside series.

This photographic series explores the dialogue between dreams and reality.  It is terminating with a series of black and white 8×10 Polaroid portrait prints.  To mark the end of hope and innocence,  the individual toys are deflated and laid on a black surface.
