St. Paul, Minn. – The Minnesota State Arts Board has awarded a grant to Art and Art History Professor Chris Willcox for 2014.
The Minnesota State Arts Board provides financial support to artists and organizations throughout the state to ensure that all Minnesotans have the opportunity to participate in the arts.
