Our first of hopefully many microgrant events, David's Last Supper celebrated the work David Schmitz offered all of Iowa in his work with the Iowa Arts Council. David moved on to the Dubuque Art Center. We asked five area cultural stakeholders to nominate five artists. About 70 people came to the Hub Spot on the Des Moines River and had an excellent meal catered by Trellis of Port of Des Moines. Each artist made a presentation and diners voted. Rachel Buse walked out the door that night with $500 for the insurance she needed to commence a residency in Pittsburgh. Anna Ford also received funding independently because of exposure from the dinner.
