We're all aware of the Archie Bray Foundation, of course. For many years they've been perhaps the most visible ceramics-specific arts entities in the US. It's a place near to my heart, having been a resident (Linda and Kensuke are also past residents). What's worth noting in this article though, is the tremendous impact the foundation has had on the local economy in Helena, MT. It makes clear just how transformational an arts organization can be in a small community. Cheers to the Bray!
