Many thanks to all who donated to the 2014 Annual Appeal!

Thanks to your generosity, the Foundation brought in a record number of donations, all of which will go immediately towards supporting our next group of Spring 2015 Fellows – fellows like choreographer Helen Simoneau, who can be seen in the video below, working in the dance studio during her 2013 Bogliasco residency. This untitled new solo piece, which will have its world premiere in March, features music by composer John C. B. Wilson.

In 18 years, the Study Center has welcomed nearly 800 Fellows from 55 different countries. In the Fall 2014 semester, 27 Fellows from 14 countries are working on new projects that will enrich the global cultural landscape.
