Tank in Rangely receives NEA grant
The National Endowment for the Arts approved a $25,000 grant for The Tank Center for Sonic Arts in Rangely.
The grant will be used to produce a film and music event in May of 2021 featuring guitarist and composer Bill Frisell and filmmaker Bill Morrison, according to a news release from the Tank.
“Frisell will perform an original score and Morrison will project film images on the landscape and sides of the seven-story water tank, telling the tank’s story as an embodiment of the American West,” the news release said.
A feature documentary featuring footage from the event will be produced in 2022, the release said.
Since 2013, the Tank has hosted a number of recording sessions, performances and local events.
