The Jerome Foundation, on a very limited basis, makes grants to established mid-career artists if they are facing particularly steep challenges and are at critical junctures in their work and careers. A grant of $15,000 was awarded to FIVE MYLES, Brooklyn, New York, to support the creation and production of a new work by puppet theater artist HANNE TIERNEY.

Shell change this relationship through the unorthodox use of video projection.
