Aurora Curator Mary Magsamen Receives TFPF Grant for Hillerbrand and Magsamen project

Congratulations are in order to Aurora curator Mary Magsamen and her husband Stephan Hillerbrand. The artist duo received one of thirty-three grants awarded by the Austin Film Society's Texas Filmmaker's Production Fund for their latest video work "Four Place Setting." The fund that began in 1996 has given away over 1.1 million over the years and this year gave away a total of $111,000 in cash and goods to Texas filmmakers. If you missed the recent exhibit of "Four Place Setting" in Houston, you'll hopefully have another chance soon as the artist duo will be using funds to distribute the work to festivals around the country. So look for it at a festival near you!
