Watson-Brown announces grants
The Watson-Brown Foundation's Junior Board of Trustees recently awarded more than $7,500 in grants.
The largest grant - $5,000 - went to the Morris Museum of Art to help initiate a long-term project which will include the digitization of nearly 400 independent Southern films from the Sinking Creek Film Collection. It includes films in several formats - 16mm, Super 8, VHS, and U-matic tape.
The other award - in the amount of $2,700 - went to the Washington Little Theater Company for restoration work on the theater entrances. The Theater, founded in 1971, is housed in the former National Guard Armory building, which was constructed in 1930. The restoration of the entrances will be designed to enhance the historic character of the building, but will also ensure patrons have easy and inviting access to the popular theater.
Both awards will officially be made in late May.
