$50k would be refreshing

foundry logoThe Foundry -- an arts startup in Cohoes -- is currently seventh in the voting in a national competition for a group of $50,000 grants. The top 10 projects at the end of this month finish in the money.

The competition is sponsored by Pepsi. You can vote online (you have to fill out a form first, and then push the "vote" button on the page).

Artists Lynne Allard and Jesse Matulis are behind the Foundry. From their site:

The Foundry is a unique integration of the arts, design, heritage, preservation and public art; committed to enriching community through culture. Public exhibitions and performances, public art, preservation of significant sites and interpretation of local history deepen our connections to the places in which we live and work.
