The Davyd Whaley Foundation launched a year ago on July 9, 2016. I’m very proud of the work we’ve accomplished over the past twelve months, supporting LA area artists. We awarded two $10,000 grants, from over 300 applications. Margaret Griffith (margaretgriffith.com) and Laura Krifka (laurakrifka.com) received the first two inaugural grants.
Davyd described himself on Twitter, “Contemporary painter, husband, pet owner & joyful do-gooder.” There are ripples from the great good that Davyd did in his life and I am grateful that the Foundation will continue his legacy.
