I'm Kenney Mencher. I'm an artist who left a tenured professorship in 2016 to pursue making art full time. This blog is about art, art history, with a emphasis on human rights. I make homoerotic art featuring bears, otters & other gay wildlife.

ArtBeat: Grantee spotlight, resources for wildfire-affected artists, & more
Today on the blog, we're featuring our official statewide folk and traditional arts partner: the Alliance for California Traditional Arts.
Resources for Wildfire-Affected Artists & Communities
With the recent and current wildfires in our state, we want to remind everyone that the Craft Emergency Relief Fund (CERF+) has emergency relief grants and interest-free loans available for eligible artists working in craft disciplines. Guidelines and eligibility are available on theCERF+ website. The application process is quick and easy, with a rapid response of 2 weeks to give artists the help they need as soon as possible.
A wealth of information on emergency readiness for all artists can be found atwww.studioprotector.org.
