  • Alice Elliott Awarded Guggenheim Fellowship

    Alice Elliott Alice Elliott, Larry's neighbor and the  producer/director of The Collector of Bedford  Street, was awarded a Guggenheim Fellowship to  Assist Research and Artistic Creation. Each year  the Guggenheim Memorial Foundation awards  approximately 200 Fellowships out of 3,500-4,000  applications. The purpose of the Fellowship  program is to help provide Fellows with blocks of  time in which they can work with as much creative freedom as possible. 

    The Fellowships are awarded to individuals who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts, and Alice certainly fits that description. She is an Academy Award-nominated director, a writer, producer, university-level teacher, advocate for the disabled, cinematographer, and a member of New Day Films, a forty-year-old educational film distribution cooperative. Visit the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation's website to read more about Alice and the Guggenheim Fellowship.
