Baltimore independent filmmaker
has had another honor bestowed upon him.
The Wexner Center for the Arts at Ohio State University has selected the Putty Hill
director for its 2012-2013 Artist Residency Awards.
"The Artist Residency Award program offers significant resources for innovators across all creative disciplines, selected each year by the center’s curators and director," Broadway World writes. "These unique residencies include considerable financial resources, along with the technical, intellectual, and staff support, along with (mental and physical) space in which to develop new work and engage with Ohio State classes and the Columbus community."
Porterfield and the three other selected artists/organizations will receive $200,000.
He plans to use the resources to work on another film, Broadway World writes.
Porterfield has also won the Sonheim Prize and was included in the Whitney Biennial.
