87 applications or 2017 – Wow!

Incredibly, we received 87 applications for the 2017 program!  For comparison, the average for the last 6 was 53.

Our jury panel will be meeting Feb 9th to select 8 finalists.  These artists will then be interviewed on the 13th to determine the final 5 participants.  After attending an intensive orientation and safety training on the 24th, the artists will be free to begin gleaning at the transfer station.  Then the real fun begins!
