Ashley Minner – Maryland

5-Pajarito-acrylic-and-charcoal-on-wood-19.75-x-15.75_-2014-150x150Ashley requested support to purchase a new computer. As a part of her practice, she travels frequently, and as a doctoral student at the University of Maryland at College Park, a high-functioning, portable computer is essential. Ashley intends to reformat and send the Macbook that she currently has to an artist community in Portobelo, Panama. The community is a partner in an on-going collaboration with Ashley that ROOTS has helped fund through two Artistic Assistance grants.
