We are please to share that the Harris Barron, A.K.A. “Eagle Air” Fellowship has been established at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts (Deer Isle, Maine) by Rose Barron. The fellowship provides tuition, room & board, and a travel stipend for a two-week workshop. Haystack was one of Harris Barron’s favorite places and a refuge for many MassArtists.
We had a fabulous virtual party in April of 2021 celebrating our 50th birthday that didn’t really feel virtual. Come back to this page for updates and followups about how to celebrate SIM’s 50th birthday!
