This interview originally aired Nov. 12, 2020.
Every year, the Alexa Rose Foundation awards over $100,000 in small grants to local Treasure Valley artists, many early in their careers. New this year, the nonprofit has created a fellowship to sponsor established local artists. The foundation just announced two recipients who each recieved $25,000 in the inaugural year of the fellowship.
One of the recipients of the Alexa Rose Fellowship is Alley Repertory Theatre’s artistic director Buffie Main, who joins Idaho Matters live along with Lily Yasuda, who oversees grants for foundation.
