Word is out!!We just received a grant for “Lee Godie: Chicago’s French Impressionist” from the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events, Individual Artist Projects Grant Program for 2016. This funding will assist us in obtaining licensing rights for music and archival footage of Lee and the city.
The other great news, is that Kapra took a quick trip to meet a relative of Lee’s and came back with a photo of Lee as a young woman (not shown).
We still need funding for an editor later in the year so please help by becoming a Crew, Editor or Producer to the film by contributing at this site.
“This project is partially supported by an Individual Artist Program Grant from the City of Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs & Special Events, as well as a grant from the Illinois Arts Council Agency, a state agency through federal funds provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.”
