Houston artists Robert Hodge and Robert Pruitt are two of this year’s recipients of the Joan Mitchell Foundation’s Painters and Sculptors Grant Program. Twenty-five individual artists, chosen through a national nomination process, received the $25,000 grant, established in 1993 to “aid and assist contemporary artists and to demonstrate that painting and sculpture are significant cultural necessities.”
