Bachmeier and Sinner were 2 of 9 artists to receive funding from the Individual Artist Partnership annual juried grant round for 2020.

Bachmeier received support for a multi-faceted project entitled “Conservation Through Clay,” which includes a national traveling exhibition debuting at the North Dakota Museum of Art in Grand Forks May 2021. The support allows Bachmeier to complete ceramic work coinciding with the 100-year anniversary of the National Parks Conservation Association which includes a lecture at the international NCECA conference March 2021 and a feature article in Ceramics Monthly, Fall 20.

Ceramics and Art Foundations Professor Kelli Sinner received support towards creating a series of prints on handmade paper that will be custom-framed for exhibit.
