After a year of living quietly on Vashon, Beka Economopoulos and Jason Jones have a spotlight trained on their longtime work at the intersection of art and activism — as well as their recent arrival on the island — with the announcement that they are the recipients of a prestigious $100,000 grant for their work.
The award, announced in mid-January by Creative Capital, a New York-based funder, was made to the couple and their collaborator Judith LeBlanc to develop a major exhibition called “The Natural History Museum Presents: The Supreme Court of Red National History.”
