2018 Window of Opportunity Grant – $1500

Colette Fu has been accepted to a month-long artist residency at Green Olive Arts Center in Tétouan, Morocco from October 3 to November 2. Colette will be studying under a local metalsmith, learning punch cut brass and copper work, often seen in Moroccan sconces and lanterns. Colette plans to merge Chinese minority designs and motifs with those found in Morocco, and intends to expand her body of work with more illustrative designs and narrative.  Colette also hopes to host workshops with children and locals, and with students at the National Fine Arts School, the only national arts institution of higher education in Morocco.
