      A gleeful shout out of THANKS to all our donors as we honor the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation for their generous award to Performance Works NorthWest in first round of SEED grants, a surprise grant given to 20 artist-driven non-profits in 5 geographical areas of the U.S. http://www.rauschenbergfoundation.org/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=119&Itemid=104 The occasion was the 10th (FINAL) Richard Foreman Festival in our cozy SE Portland studio/venue. And to connect the dots...the Foreman text we chose for this year's challenge to artists to make a short work in 10 days was called SEEDS. http://pwnw.wordpress.com/2012/10/22/nov-8-17-10th-final-richard-foreman-festival/
