Huff Awarded Rasmuson Foundation Fellowship
The Rasmuson Foundation has selected 10 artists to received Fellowship Awards ($18,000 each) and 25 who will receive Project Awards ($7,500 each). The recipients include literary artists, photographers, craft artists, poets, multi-disciplinary artists, carvers, composers, folk and traditional artists, performance artists, novelists, and installations artists. The awardees were chosen from nearly 400 applications. Photographer, Ben Huff, who has taught Digital Photography and Art Appreciation at UAS, was selected as one of the 2016 Fellows. Huff will be starting Ice Fog Press, an independent publisher that will make art and photography books about Alaska, by Alaskans. Ice Fog Press' first book will be a small edition of his work titled "Transmission," a series of pictures of satellite dishes at night.
