George received a wonderful award this year, the Creative Workforce Fellowship (CWF). 

The CWF is made possible by the generous support of Cuyahoga County citizens through Cuyahoga Arts and Culture, the Fellowship is designed to strengthen the voices of 20 outstanding artists each year.  

George has been able to spend most of the year in his studio making art and doing what he loves to do. The Fellowship allowed him to take a sabbatical from teaching this year. (He is Professor of Art at Cleveland State University) 

I've written about George here once before. I think you'll agree the award is well-deserved.
