Marty Gear Costuming Arts and Sciences Fund has awarded a grant to photographer Richard Man to support his “Transformations: Cosplay” photographic project. The project will examine “how costumers/cosplayers transform themselves from their ‘mundane’ daily appearance to temporarily ‘become’ the characters they portray.”
Did you know that only part of the money to make grants comes from membership dues? The Fund also depends on generous donations from individuals and chapters who understand how important it is to promote the art and science of costuming through grants to innovative projects and activities.
By supporting the Fund through your tax-deductible donation, you can ensure that fellow ICG members who receive grants can explore new ideas, discover new techniques, and engage in activities that benefit the entire costuming community.
If you want to congratulate or honor a fellow costumer for a notable achievement, or remember a friend or loved one who appreciated the art and science of costuming, consider making a donation to the Fund in his or her name. Your donation, no matter how large or small, will make a difference.
